Every year, sports enthusiasts in Qatar anticipate the announcement of registration to take part in RSF’s myriad of team and individual activities that have grown in popularity thanks to a carefully designed programme which comprises a range of popular sports.
AZF will host more than 1,000 participants, combining teams who will compete in basketball, volleyball, cricket, hockey, employees futsal and men’s football.
Moreover, individual activities such as Junior Fitness Challenge, Be Fit with Aspire for Ladies, and Fit and Run for Ladies will welcome 50 participants per session, as well as the Special Needs Table Tennis Competition, a one-day event that attracts many participants each year.
Meanwhile, Aspetar, the orthopedic and sports medicine hospital and member of AZF, will organise a sports competition for AZF employees as part of its “Step into Health” programme during Ramadan, where participants who have walked the most each week will be celebrated. Participants will use a smartphone app to calculate the number of steps.
AZF introduces new tournaments every year that prove to be hugely popular within the community and help encourage more people to get involved and stay active during the holy month of Ramadan. Events like RSF help AZF fulfil one of its core objectives to promote healthy and active lifestyles for the people of Qatar.
