The 5 Best Retreats for Pro Sports Teams
Whether you want to get your team pumped for the season ahead, facilitate some chill-out time after a gruelling match or simply boost morale, a retreat is the way to go. Teammates that spend downtime together and enjoy one another’s company generally perform better on the pitch. Which makes a sport holiday less frivolous expenditure and more solid investment in your team’s dynamic. Whatever your sport, whatever the season we can help your team unwind, reconnect, recharge and get focused.
At Simplexity, we have been working with sports’ teams for over 50 years. We’ve helped cricket teams, football teams, rugby teams, hockey teams – you name it – head off on a retreat together. And we take the logistical stress out of the whole experience. From arranging flights, transfers and hotels to fine-tuning dietary requirements and entertainment packages, we’ve got you covered.
