As winter is approaching, Aspire Zone is organising plenty of fun-filled sport and community activities throughout December to give visitors the opportunity to enjoy a warm and pleasant atmosphere of fitness and health.             

On the sports side, the Aspire Banks League – organised in collaboration with the Qatar Central Bank – continued for a seventh week at Aspire Dome. The league has continued to witness exciting competition between the participating banks. Qatar National Bank is currently in the lead, followed closely by Qatar Central Bank and Barwa Bank.

Aspire Dome is also hosting the Aspire Embassies’ Futsal Tournament, which takes place every Friday and Saturday. The competition demonstrates the strength of ties between the various embassies and diplomatic posts in Qatar, and is a fine example of the important role sport plays in building and strengthening relationships between different world states.         

On the community side, Aspire Zone Foundation hosted on December 9 the “Aspire Challenge” for students aged 13-16. The competition, which was held on December 9 near the lake at Aspire Park, saw the participation of students from eight different schools. It included a number of physical and mental challenges including sack-racing, monkey-climbing, running, cycling, puzzle-solving and other mentally stimulating activities. At the end of the tournament, students from Al Hekma International School went home with the first place title, followed by the Iranian school in second place and Al-Furqan School in third. 

Aspire Zone is also continuing with the “Splash & Dash” programme until December 26. The programme involves activities such as running and swimming that are held in Aspire Dome, where participants can utilise the venue’s swimming pool and air-conditioned indoor athletics track to improve their fitness and health. The programme takes place every Saturday from 3:30PM until 5:30PM.                     

In addition, Aspire Park hosts a number of different activities including the second phase of the Aspire “Run in the Park” on December 12 at 8:00AM and the “Kids Art in the Park” activity every Saturday from 10:30AM to 12:30PM. Families and children are able to enjoy activities such as paddle boating in the lake at Aspire Park, pony rides around Aspire Park, and more.

Aspire Zone Foundation organises a number of community events and activities throughout the year, providing access to its state-of-the-art venues and facilities for all members of the community. It is the ideal location to practice sport and exercise, and provides a range of cultural activities for the wider community.
