The Sport Escapes team

Directors Debbie Christian & Ric Wright lead the team.  Debbie has been in the travel industry for over 23 years and a confessed petrol head. Debbie can be found at Car Hops across the country and is equally passionate about rugby, league, cricket, and really, nearly all sports.

Successfully running businesses for years, Ric Wright is a travel fanatic who would happily explore the world year-round.  A keen boatie and fisherman, Ric enjoys motorsport or trying to find the perfect boat to buy when the fish are not running.

Together, Debbie and Ric share a passion for combining sport and travel. Their last adventure saw them drive Route 66 in Mustangs in 2019.  With specialist knowledge of everything involving travel arrangements and strong supplier relationships to ensure our sports packages run smoothly, you can be confident of an excellent sports holiday  created by the team.
