At its heart Touring Sport Managing Director, Jem Hancock has vast experience in sport at a professional, amateur and local level. Having played football at a professional and non-league level he went on to manage and sat on the committee of a local youth football team from under 5’s through to under 18’s.
Over the years sport has always been a key influence in his life. From his early days watching the Ali, Fraser and Norton flights through to the 2012 London Olympics and more recently the Cricket WC, Women’s Hockey WC, Wimbledon and Ryder Cups, sport has provided many memories and fantastic sporting moments throughout the years.
Jem has always been an “enthusiastic” golfer, and has recently successfully added golf tours to the portfolio. Being invited to play in the 2009 Spanish Pro Am to play with the reigning champion Peter Laurie, has to date been the been the highlight of his golfing experience.
With an appetite for travel, Jem had the opportunity to combine both of his passions, sport and travel. “The opportunity to take teams away on a tour not only provides them with the prospect of competing against international opposition, but enhances all of the excellent life skills needed, teamwork, sportsmanship and an appreciation of the culture of the country they are visiting” memories that will last a lifetime.
Key highlights on tour have been:
- Coaching Rugby and Cricket with young leaders from the UK at a Primary School in a Cape Town’s Khayelitsha Township.
- Going behind the Scenes with young Sports Coaches at F1 Catalunya, Espanyol, Barcelona Hockey and Futsal.
- Bringing teams to visit the UK to experience playing and watching fixtures across a multitude of sports.

Touring Sport were simply superb.
‘I can not express our sincere gratitude to Jem for what he did for us. Considering it was a very late booking he went out of his way to make the trip superb. I shall make a determined effort to let everyone that I come in to contact with know what a superb company you are and what fantastic service we received. I can speak for our entire group when I say that Touring Sport were simply superb.’
UK Football Team
‘From the moment we touched down and contact between myself and Touring Sports representative was made, the whole trip was an unbelievable experience. The accommodation was ideal, the food was good, the trip, the people we met and of course the football was tremendous, set within spectacular surroundings.’
Irish football team
‘It was the attention to detail that ensured our trip to South Africa was such a success, the planning for the trip gave us a great balance of challenges, experience and fun. The tours reps were available at all hours; a great reassurance for any party leader. At the end of the tour I was in contact directly to start planning our next trip, can there be a better advert for Touring Sport’
UK School Rugby Team
One great success
‘I would let you know that our group was very excited about the trip to England, we had a fantastic time and it was indeed like you said a very good accommodation for our group. There was enough facility for our big group of 87 people. Further I want to let you know that whole of Helmond talks at this time about the trip to England. It was for us and so for you one great success. We are now thinking about arranging every year an international trip.’
Dutch football team
‘Just a note to extend my genuine appreciation for all the work put in to this tour. It was a terrific experience for the team (as well as parents) and your involvement the entire time enabled me to focus on the coaching and management of the team. Your impact on the team can be summed up by what Trevor said to me last night ‘Jem is the man’.
