Preparations are in full swing at The Pearl-Qatar to celebrate Qatar National Sport Day tomorrow.
United Development Company (UDC), in collaboration with Qatar Olympic Committee, has prepared a variety of sporting activities for all ages at Lido Venezia Beach in Qanat Quartier precinct at The Pearl-Qatar from 9am to 4pm.
National Sport Day aims to help realise HH the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani’s vision for a healthy Qatar. The celebration is part of UDC’s strategy to promote sports, physical education and an active community in and around The Pearl-Qatar in line with Qatar National Vision 2030.
Sports activities will include beach volleyball, beach football, basketball, table tennis, badminton, fitness classes, outdoor gym and a designated zone hosting a variety of kid-oriented attractions, ensuring the day will be a family-centred occasion.
UDC president and CEO Ibrahim Jassim al-Othman said, “National Sport Day, now in its fifth year, is a wonderful and unique initiative for all to come together and feel proud that Qatar, as a nation, is one of the few countries in the world to set aside a day to actively promote a healthy lifestyle.”
“The annual celebration is very much aligned with UDC’s corporate social responsibility commitment to encourage a healthy and balanced living among the company’s employees and the community at large,” he noted.
“We urge all residents at The Pearl-Qatar to participate in the planned activities for them to experience how a few small steps can bring out the sportsperson in each of us,” added al-Othman.
Sports plays a significant role in The Pearl-Qatar’s community, firstly to safeguard its residents against possible diseases such as diabetes, heart attacks and obesity. In addition, National Sport Day acts as an integral means of unification when celebrating the Island’s cultural pool of diversity.
UDC will celebrate National Sport Day at the Qanat Quartier Lido beach with a variety of sports activities.
