SPORTS ABROAD

We have used the company Sports Abroad for a number of years now with our previous trips to Spain. As a club a very close working partnership has been developed and this has led to loyalty discounts and further advice on opportunities as they have arisen. We will be using Sports Abroad to book the activities planned in the itinerary over in Fuerteventura.

OASIS PAPAGAYO SPORTS RESORT, CORRALEJO, FUERTEVENTURA

Sports Abroad have been working in partnership with the Oasis Papagayo Sports complex in Fuerteventura to try and create the perfect warm weather swimming training facility.

The facility is located in the beach resort of Corralejo in the north of the island. With sunshine all year round and everything located on-site and within walking distance, the Oasis Papagayo provides the very best environment for warm weather training.

The resort, which is just 1.5 km from Corralejo Beach, offers a 7 lane heated 50m pool with starting blocks, anti wave lane ropes, pace clocks and backstroke flags.  The swimming pool is part of a large sporting complex which includes; tennis courts, gym, sauna, bowling alley, spinning classes, aerobics, volleyball, bike hire and much more. There is also a supermarket, an a-la-carte restaurant, buffet restaurant and a sports bar on-site. Nearby, there are a number of shops, bars, restaurants and entertainment facilities in the Papagayo Commercial Centre and next door lies the Baku water park; the only water park on the island.


Teams will stay in one or two bedroom apartments with a living room, TV and private bathroom. Each apartment also has a small kitchen area with a fridge, hob, toaster, microwave, kettle and kitchen utensils.

The Oasis Papagayo provides teams with a perfect training environment and with plenty of options to keep athletes and staff entertained away from the pool.

PRICING AND FUNDRAISING

We are now asking for a deposit for the trip for the amount of £300 by Sunday 9th June so we can confirm the booking and start to plan for the amount of interest we have received.

The deposit is to cover the reservation of the Hotel, Pool and Gym facilities while abroad.

Please make this payment by cheque (made payable to Northallerton ASC).

The deposit is non-refundable due to the booking nature of the trip.

At this stage flights and travel costs have not yet been finalized but will still bring the total amount payable to the final trip price of £950(will reduce with fundraising).

It is important to add that your application for the visit is going to be checked by the coaching team and by the committee to ensure that it is suitable for you ability and age. If we feel we need to speak to you more about your application then a member of the coaching team/committee will arrange a meeting with swimmers and parents.


This trip will be supported by Northallerton ASC. The funding for the trip will come from the members going on the trip.

The remaining balance will be due by the 31st July 2020 and will be available to pay in full (in advance of December 2019) or monthly deposits (£50 per month). All fees are made payable to ‘Northallerton ASC’ or standing order can be set up to our trip account to smoothen the process by speaking to our Treasurer.
