We’re dedicated to promoting a healthy lifestyle, so come out and see us while you’re getting active!
What is Qatar National Sports Day?
Qatar National Sports Day takes place every year on the second Tuesday of February. Typically falling between February 9-14, this year the holiday falls on February 14th.
The first Qatar National Sports Day was held in 2012. Qatar joined India, Iran, Japan, and Malaysia in being only one of a handful of nations which dedicate a national holiday to the celebration of physical exercise and healthy living.
From football (soccer), tennis, cricket and basketball to running, volleyball, yoga, and scuba diving, you should be able to find a sport for you!
