A Fantastic 2024 Sydney Tournament Trip – Competition Day Challenges, Exploring Sydney, Endless Shopping, Perfect End of Tournament Dinner with Everyone – March 2024

It was another fantastic Sydney Tournament trip with the most FUN group of students and families…

The beautiful city of Sydney always a privilege and pleasure to be in and always packed full of new experiences and activities to enjoy…

Our base in Darling Harbour proving to be the best of locations for all to explore the many great shopping precincts, enjoy the great food and just people watch the hordes of human beings living their busy lives in the bustling CBD areas…

But best of all, enjoying the daily company and warm friendships of all the wonderful people and families in this group…and ending our trip with a perfect evening with an amazing group dinner in beautiful Darling Harbour….the evening setting topped off with a perfectly clear sky and warm weather..

Thank you to all for the many precious memories and the invaluable privilege of your friendships…
