Ooredoo has announced the success of its National Sport Day activities
held at the Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) Park with hundreds of families
and friends attending the event.
The Sport Day event offered over 40 sporting activities available free of charge, the telecommunications provider said in a statement.
Highlights of the day included the Ooredoo vs Qatar Football League friendly match, featuring Mubarak Mustafa, Al Mu’zz Ali, Talal al-Bloushi, Mohamed Salem al-Mal, Mohsen al-Yazidi, Saud al-Hajri, Abdulla Taleb, and Ahmed Kanoo from Oman.
Other popular activities were the human chess game, and an inflatable zone, which attracted families and a host of people.
Mini-golf, boxing, table tennis, archery, tug-of-war, karate, aerobics, basketball, and more were also available during the event.
On top of free sporting activities, Ooredoo encouraged people to walk MIA Park in order to receive up to 750 Nojoom points. Manar Khalifa al-Muraikhi, Director of PR and Corporate Communications at Ooredoo, said: “We’re extremely happy with the outcome of our Sport Day 2018 event. This was the seventh year that Ooredoo has partnered with MIA Park to bring Qatar’s communities together and this year we had more activities and participants than ever before.”
As well as sporting activities, healthy food options were sold at the park alongside fresh juice and water, and Ooredoo encouraged families to bring a picnic and enjoy the daylong event.
“We hope our Sport Day event enabled everyone to try out a range of new sports and activities and we encourage everyone in Qatar to try and keep these activities up throughout the year, to become healthier and fitter,” al-Muraikhi added.
Ooredoo’s support for National Sport Day is part of its ongoing commitment to raise awareness of the importance of fitness and health to the people of Qatar.
