MasterClass Holland

We’ve been running sports tours for more than 25 years, and Valkenburg is one of our favourite locations.

It’s only 4 hours from Calais so travel is easy. Everything is within walking distance, so your team can easily and safely explore this enchanting town. There are also fantastic sports facilities with plenty of local teams, so you’re guaranteed competitive fixtures.

Two days of intensive coaching and local fixtures culminate in the MasterClass tournament. With 600 students competing across the range of sports, it’s an exhilarating atmosphere. Join us on an upcoming tour.
