High-Profile Events

The flawless execution of the 2017 America's Cup race is more than a feather in our cap – it's a shining example of what can happen when you partner with BTA for an event. So, too, are the Howard University Training Camp that brought over 100 swimmers to the National Sports Centre, the USTA Visitor Tournaments that took place at the Coral Beach & Tennis Club and 2018's Amlin World Triathlon.

A Safe, Welcoming Place

With its diverse blend of cultural influences and a population of just 65,000, Bermuda has the feel of a laid-back small town – albeit one with international sensibilities. It's an island known the world over for its warmth and hospitality; the kind of place where everyone you pass says "good morning." It's also an incredibly safe place for groups of all ages. The crime rate is incredibly low, as are risks arising from natural hazards.

Jack Leavitt Headshot

This was the first time we’ve been to Bermuda and we were absolutely floored. The destination served up a relaxing atmosphere for our training camp. The people are so nice, gracious and easy-going. The National Sports Centre surpassed our expectations – it’s a high-quality facility that I would definitely recommend to other groups.
