In celebration of Qatar National Sport Day, Qatar Development Bank (QDB) organized a packed day of exciting and unique sports activities at Aspire Zone, promoting the country’s strategy to encourage healthy lifestyles in the local community.


The QDB tent enjoyed wide participation from the public, families and their children who took part in a full day of engaging activities from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm Tuesday. Guests received expert tips from a specialized team of dietitians who provided them with easy and innovative ideas for maintaining a healthy lifestyle at home and in the office, when people tend to sit for many hours at a time.


QDB again partnered with the Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) team, who also offered professional tips and medical consultations to the event’s participants. Visitors to the tent showed great interest in the free sessions, pledging to put what they’ve learned into practice and helping create a healthier community and future for the country.

On the occasion of QDB’s celebration of National Sport Day, Maha Mohammed Al-Essa, Head of Communications and Events at QDB, commented on the success and wide participation at the QDB’s tent, saying: “Our celebration of Sport Day embodies the Emiri decree, which states that every second Tuesday in February will be National Sport Day in Qatar, aiming to promote healthy lifestyles in our community and build a healthier future together. In partnership with Aspire Zone and Hamad Medical Corporation, QDB is proud to participate for the third consecutive year, enhancing Qatar’s vibrant sports culture, encouraging health competition and inclusion through sport, and helping build a society with good physical and mental health habits in line with the human development pillar of Qatar National Vision 2030. "

The QDB tent marked Sport Day with a wide range of fun-filled activities exercises. Participants particularly enjoyed the program’s focus on activities and exercises that can be practiced in small spaces at the office. Visitors expressed their gratitude to QDB for the practical and valuable information they received at the tent and took away several easy-to-implement fitness solutions than can be practiced despite busy working schedules. Guests also went home with a special QDB fitness and nutrition booklet with important information on everything from maintaining a healthy diet to day-to-day lifestyle tips.
