Dubai residents can look forward to a family-fun, sporting spectacular at Dubai Sports City as they open their doors showcasing the very best of their sporting activities on offer ahead of the new season.
Taking place this Saturday from 09:00 to 12:30 at The Dome and ICC Academy, it’s your chance to experience a wide variety of coaching programmes and entertainment activities.
These include lessons from the ICC Academy’s world-class cricket coaching team, football trials from the Spanish Soccer School, golf taster sessions from The Els Club and Butch Harmon School of Golf, as well as demonstrations and activities from the newly formed Dubai Sports City Eagles rugby team.
Entry is free of charge and will allow parents and children to take part in lots of competitions, try their hand at the brand new fitness zone with complimentary fitness classes and activities for all the family, as well as sample some delicious dishes from a range of its premium food and beverage outlets.
Coaches will be available throughout the day, giving insights into their favourite sport and offering advice on which activity suits them best. Children who sign up for an academy will also receive special discounts on the day.
And for budding cricketers, there’s even more reason to attend with the ICC Academy hosting open trials from 14:00. Open to boys aged 12-18, up to 12 talented cricketers will be selected by the ICC Academy for a fully-funded scholarship in their Warriors Emerging Players Programme.
Khalid Al Zaroon, Dubai Sports City president, believes there’s plenty of reasons to attend. “The Dubai Sports City open day is one of the highlights on our extensive events calendar, it’s a great opportunity for the whole community to get together and try their hand at wide range of activities that we have here on offer at Dubai Sports City,” he said.
“Our open day is an excellent opportunity for the whole family to come and try out a new sport or activity that they may have not tried before and enjoy it for many years to come.
“The open day also allows us to demonstrate and emphasise the importance of leading a healthy and active lifestyle, which we believe is a way of life – sport really has a unique way of bringing people together.
“Those attending will also have the chance to take part in competitions, activities and sample some of the delicious food we have on site, so whether you are a sporting fanatic, looking to get fit with the family or try out a new activity, there’s something for you.”
