Sporting Activities in the UAE
September 15, 2014
Love sport? Love warm weather?
If you’re a sports enthusiast, you’re going to adore living in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The optimal climate and vast selection of choices will have you revved up for action. Whether you are a hard core athlete, a novice who loves the outdoors, or a family looking to spend quality, active time together, there is something for everyone.
The UAE’s diverse structure and miles of coastline provides the opportunity to take part in a variety of outdoor sports such as:
• Mountain biking
• Water sports (swimming, kitesurfing, jet skiing)
• Dune bashing
• Rock climbing
• Horse riding
And much, much more.
Fancy escaping the heat to focus on indoor activities? There are numerous soft play venues for children, salsa to belly dancing, gymnastics, hockey, fencing and even indoor snow skiing.
Claire Hunt, Senior Manager of Hala Abu Dhabi / Etihad Airways, explains that because a major sporting event takes place every month in both Abu Dhabi and Dubai, attendance continues to grow each year and the diversity of activities ensures continued participation. As a sample, the Formula One takes place in November, HSBC Gold Tournament in January and Tri Yas in February, there’s really something for everyone.
The UAE is truly a unique destination for everything sports.
