Teams who want to combine matches on a turf pitch with a stay in a super holiday hotspot should look no further than the Hanze Trophy. The organisers, SVI and ZAC, lay on a tournament which is highly valued by the participants. Numerous teams sign up each year and there are often four nationalities per group. In conclusion: the Hanze Trophy combines a huge talent for organisation and a wonderful sense of hospitality in Zwolle. There is a bonus in store for participants in the Hanze Trophy too: they can either stay in a holiday accommodation centre for young people, which boasts facilities such as a disco, cinema and swimming pool, or a bungalow park with a disco, swimming pool, playground, various cafés and restaurants near to the largest amusement park in the Netherlands. Guests really are spoilt for choice.
In the centre of Zwolle (125,000 inhabitants), the rich history of the Hanseatic city is palpable. The centuries-old centre contains beautiful town houses, fortifications, canals and a vibrant city centre. The Hanze Trophy is played at a sports complex in the south of the city, around 4 kilometres from the centre.
The Walibi World amusement park is paradise for the whole family. The highlight of the park is also the highest point in the park: Goliath, the mother of all roller coasters. At Walibi World, everything is higher, faster, bigger, more spectacular and more impressive. In short, Walibi World is an extraordinary world! And all of that only 30 kilometres from Zwolle.
