Why Choose Intersport Global

Intersport Global was established in 1996 to provide a total travel service for schools, sporting clubs and cultural groups with a focus on simplicity and a stress free experience.

The aim of our company is to provide an excellent service for school and club groups travelling internationally. Our difference is threefold:

  1. We organise both the games and events at your destination and using our extensive experience can match the necessary skill levels to sporting events in the host countries.
  2. We provide a complete and seamless service that covers the entire event thereby allowing the school/club organiser to focus on their own important roles within their communities.
  3. You can design your own unique tour. Tell us your tour requirements and objectives and we can help you custom make the trip to achieve the desired goals.

The Directors of Intersport Global are Nick Rushton and Jane Rushton and together they have many years of experience in sports administration and travel throughout the world to create tours to remember.  The Directors are backed by highly specialised staff to assist in supplying you with the specialist services you require. The staff at head office includes Administrator, Natalie Hanau. We also have staff based in different countries around the world to assist our tours once they arrive in the country for a tour.

Our Mission

The team at Intersport Global are here to listen to your needs and deliver a tour experience you will remember for ever. We specialise in sport, culture, arts and music tours all around the world.

Worldwide and Local Services

Intersport Global has its head office in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia with offices around the world. This allows our network of experienced sport and events people to provide interstate and/or international competition for teams that otherwise might not have the necessary contacts or ability to organise an event.

We give teams the opportunity to gauge their skill against players of their own age in other states or countries. This provides an excellent platform to team members to travel interstate or overseas and broaden their horizons, obtain life skills and generally improve their education.

Besides tournaments and tours in the major sports, we organise expansive coaching clinics, leadership and development courses plus domestic and overseas expeditions and tours in many other sports and for cultural events.

We look forward to being of service to you.

Our Vision Statement is to provide an excellent service for school and club groups travelling internationally.

Our highly experienced staff understand the difficulties in planning a group tour involving large numbers of people and our services are based around removing the stress of this complex task to allow you to maximise the positive aspects of combining travel and sport.

Here are the leading reasons for working with Intersport Global for your next tour or event:

  • Seamless services encompassing how to get there, where to stay, where to visit, and who to play against when you are there.
  • The best contacts in airlines, accommodation, and transportation throughout the world.

The 2016 INF was again a superb experience for our girls. This was our third International Netball Festival and we will continue to support this event as it provides quality competition, a comprehensive list of itinerary options and the staff are always only too happy to assist. We have found the whole tour process to be extremely well catered, organised and professional. The staff provide excellent communication and flexibility for our frequent requests. The parents and players have been very appreciative of the efforts of all concerned in making this an unforgettable experience. Thanks to all and see you in the near future!

I cannot thank Nick and the team at Intersport Global enough for what they put together with their support of our Rugby Tour to New Zealand. We had originally planned to tour Japan but due to limited numbers I arranged with Nick very late in the process to change our destination to New Zealand on the proviso of plenty of action packed activities and competitive matches. In both areas the itinerary put together by Intersport Global didn’t disappoint. That mixed with the Cultural Experience that only New Zealand can provide made for the complete package. I would not hesitate to recommend Intersport Global to anyone wishing to make the most out of their sporting tour. Thanks Nick, you and your team made my life as Manager of the tour (during the whole process) a lot easier and the experiences encountered while on tour by all coaching staff and players will be something they will never forget. Anthony Lyndon – Albany Creek GPS Rugby Club - Under 15 Team & Tour Manager - Under 15 New Zealand Tour 2015

On behalf of Liverpool Catholic Club Netball, we would like to say a huge thank you to Jane, Nick and the team at Intersport Global for putting on such a fantastic week of netball & fun! Such a well organised event with a great atmosphere & itinerary on and off the court. Definitely worth all the organising! Liverpool Catholic Club Netball re: International Netball Festival

Thank you very much for a great weekend ! Umpired a lot of great teams with a lot of talent. - Corey Tauariki (re: International Netball Festival)

Grace had a wonderful trip and all enjoyed it very much. Your organisation was magnificent. The accomodation was fabulous and all went so well. I thought you guys had a great philosophy and it made for everyone to have a good time. I would have come to speak to you more but I was struggling with ill health the whole time. Not to worry at least I can tell you now my girls thought it was the most fun they have ever had at a carnival and they wish to thank you for your organisation and making it possible.

Great week. We thoroughly enjoyed it!! Fingers crossed... we will be able to field a team next year and get the money together to enter again.  My preference.... games in morning not afternoon :). And if you ever think of running something in Sydney.. let me know!! :) - Van Nguyen - Liverpool Catholic Netball Club (re: International Netball Festival)

NICK!!!!! Well what can I say.... The trip probably had to be the biggest highlight of my time at EOHS, you should feel privileged to be a part of that :) Thanks again for all the effort you put into the trip, you did such a brilliant job!! A+++

The trip was very successful. Though we did not win any games we were competitive in all sports, and the focus of the trip wasn't really on the sport but the overall experience of being in Fiji. We were very well looked after by Sattar. All the things he had organised for us we enjoyed immensely. Myself and the Principal have been receiving overwhelming positive feedback from parents of students who went. The experiences the students have been able take with them is priceless. Thank-you so much for all your work and effort in organising the trip. We will definitely being go back again in two years time. I will make contact with you early next year to start the ball rolling for the next trip in 2011. Thanks again Chris

In September 2008 we travelled to New Zealand with Intersport Global. We took a senior secondary Netball team to the South Island for games in Christchurch, Queenstown and Palmerston. We also managed to fit in some sight seeing and other touristy activities. The girls had a fantastic time. Intersport Global were a wonderful organisation with which to deal. Nothing was too much trouble for Nick Rushton and his team. Right from the start with planning and preparation through to support on the ground in New Zealand, Intersport Global were a totally professional outfit. I would have no hesitation in recommending them for your next sporting trip overseas. In fact, we are just planning our next one with Intersport Global. Nick Byron Head of Sport Fairholme College

Nick organised our tour after we were unable to make a tournament back in April. Nick and his wife Jane did a superb job organising games and also came to the games to watch. They organised an after match function on day 1 as a way of saying welcome. It was much appreciated. Our girls were sad to be saying goodbye after 7 days and were saying they wanted more games. They are already asking if we can do a return trip. The accommodation was great – comfortable and very safe. It was close to the courts and a shopping mall. The rental vehicles were good. We had a 12 seater van and a car. I would recommend any team wanting to do a tour a tournament to use Nick and Intersport Global. A friendly and highly organised team to work with.
