Posted on Jun 12, 2014 by Luke James
The Dubai World Trade Centre is poised for another edition of it’s enormously popular Dubai Sports World Series over the summer.
From 12 June until Saturday August 30 the Dubai World Trade Centre transforms into a sporting mecca, with an 11-week schedule of specialist training camps and clinics as well as purpose built, world class facilities for a range of sports. We count down some of top reasons to make sure Dubai Sports world is on your radar this summer.
Enjoy The World Class Facilities
Dubai Sports World is the Middle East’s largest indoor summer sports event and is returning for its fourth triumphant year at the Dubai World Trade Centre. The event will be taking place across the Sheik Saeed Halls as well as at the multi-purpose Trade Centre Arena. This means there are over 28,000 square metres of space to cram in some of the best facilities seen in the region. The venue will feature six badminton courts, eight standard pitches for five or seven a side football and rugby, one volleyball court, three basketball courts, one tennis court, a climbing wall, cricket pitch, 600-metre running track, skateboarding and BMX parks as well as a state of the art gym. In addition, Dubai Sports World has incorporated four pool tables, 12 table tennis tables and two foosball tables into the free-to-enter Entertainment Zone. It’s safe to say that there’s something for everyone.
Location, Location, Location
Situated in the centre of Dubai’s central business and leisure district, the World Trade Centre is easily accessible by a range of transportation means. The centre features ample parking for over 5,000 cars and there is public transport available to its door by both bus or the World Trade Centre’s dedicated metro station. With events running from 8 a.m. until midnight daily, the old excuse“I can’t find the time” isn’t going to fly. There are few other places more accessible in Dubai, so if you’re a fan of sport of any kind, be sure to stop by and check out Dubai Sports World.
Maintain Your Fitness Whilst Escaping The Heat
With average daily temperatures soaring over 41 degrees, it’s fair to say that things really start to heat up in Dubai over summer. That doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice your exercise regime, though. Now, you can feel the rush of a cool breeze while running in air conditioned facilities on the purpose built track, or play your chosen sport across some of the other dedicated(and cool)sporting facilities. There are a huge range of indoor spaces for rugby, football, tennis, basketball, volleyball, cricket and bmx riding that are available for hire. Guests can also enjoy free access to badminton, table tennis, a state-of-the-art gym and running track. It’s the best way to stay active over summer and beat the heat.
Catch The Excitement Of The Dubai Corporate World Cup
If you can’t make it to Brazil for all the excitement of the World Cup, make sure you head down to Dubai Sports World for the inaugural Dubai Sports World Corporate Cup. From 12 June to 11 July, five-a-side teams will be representing the 32 teams that have qualified for the World Cup. These teams will be competing for glory in the indoor, purpose-built football stadium. The competition pits representatives of some of the world’s best known companies against each other in a gruelling knockout-style tournament where there can only be one victor. Catch all the action from the 1,000 seat tiered stadium seating from June 12, and cheer your country to victory. For further fixture information click here.
Participate in A World Record
Champion British boxer David “The Hayemaker” Haye will be attempting to set a Guinness World Record for charity by hosting the world’s largest boxing lesson. On June 21 the former WBA heavyweight champion and unified world cruiserweight champion in the WBA, WBC and WBO will be running a 40-minute session that encompasses movement training and technical boxing with a boxing themed warm-up and warm-down. Most of us don't have too many opportunities to be involved in a world record attempt, so make sure to get down and register your place in history. Entry is technically free but visitors are encouraged to make a minimum donation of AED 30 on arrival which goes to charity.
World Class Sports Academies for Kids
Kids and young adults who love sports will adore the Dubai Sports World Expo. The dynamic environment offers talented athletes between six and 18 years of age the opportunity to hone their skills whilst keeping the scorching summer sun at bay.
Certified, professional coaches provide individual training and mentoring to push aspiring athletes to achieve their sporting goals or simply improve their skill set in a range of sporting disciplines. With academies available for tennis, badminton, cricket and football, there’s bound to be something for everyone, no matter what their sport.
