It’s the emirate’s largest indoor summer sports arena and it’s back to keep you in shape this summer.
Dubai Sports World (DSW) returns to Dubai World Trade Centre for an eighth year, with an exciting 16-week schedule of sports and fitness, plus summer camps for younger ones, from May until September.
Sounds good! How many sports are we talking about?
DSW 2018 kicks off on 17th May with all the tried-and-tested favourites (the basketball courts are ALWAYS a sell-out) and new activities including virtual golf, Battle Park shoot ’em up and gymnastics.
Every summer the massive 25,000 sq metre venue becomes a huge indoor sports club and there’s pretty much something for everyone, whether you want a big sweaty workout, a kick-about with friends or a gentle stroll – six pro-standard pitches for five and seven-a-side football and rugby; 11 basketball courts (three for street basketball), 12 badminton courts; three tennis courts; two volleyball courts; cycling and fitness studios; a cricket pitch; space for racquet sport padel; a table tennis zone; 400-metre running track and a Gold’s Gym equipped with the latest Technogym gizmos.
The venue is open from 8am-midnight, so there’s plenty of time to squeeze in a workout.
Can I bring the kids?
As the sun scorches down outside, the air-conditioned interior is perfect place for kids to play. Just Play Sports Camp returns for a second year, with a Ninja Warrior zone, football, rugby, basketball, arts and crafts, gymnastics, from 9am to 12pm daily.
How do we get there?
DSW is a short walk from Trade Centre Metro on the Red Line. Free and paid-for parking (from AED 5 an hour) is available nearby too, behind the Sheikh Rashid Hall.
What’s the cost?
There’s been no charge to use the running track or gym, although they’re first come, first served and will be busy at peak times. There aren’t any showers either, so make plans to clean up elsewhere!
