Ooredoo has announced its activity-packed schedule for National Sport Day, designed to engage with people across Qatar and encourage them to take part in a day-long celebration of sport on Tuesday 10 February 2015.

Ooredoo’s announced activities, which include competitions, children’s shows and exercise classes, are all hosted at the Museum of Islamic Art Park (MIA), and the company promises its customers the biggest and best Sports Day event yet.

Highlights include the new “Snow Area”, an activity zone where everyone can get a taste of the cold with snowball fights and a snow slide. For children, Ooredoo has arranged two exciting live shows: “Speed Painting with Jean Francois” and Disney’s “Wish Upon A Dream”, which will have performances throughout the day.

There will also be a series of classic sporting competitions, such as football tournaments, shooting tournaments, land-rowing, arm wrestling, sumo wrestling, a family treasure hunt and more.

Fatima Sultan Al Kuwari, Director of Community & Public Relations, Ooredoo said: ‘‘This year, Ooredoo is all about encouraging everyone to take part and get fit through a range of fun activities. We have pulled out all the stops to provide our biggest-ever National Sport Day event yet, and we hope everyone will take part.”

Young adults, and people looking for more alternative ways to exercise have also been catered for this year, with activities such as Paintballing and a dedicated Parkour section.

Ooredoo will also install a number of ‘Socialising Stations’ in the park where people can take and post pictures to social media, as well as invite friends to come and join the fun.

Ooredoo’s support for Qatar’s National Sport Day is part of its ongoing commitment to raise awareness on the importance of fitness and health to the people of Qatar.
