Health Clubs and Sports

Maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle is a necessity for many people these days, and in Ruwais we offer every opportunity for the local community to enjoy life to the full. From tennis to football, free weights to squash, and running machines to yoga classes – you name it and there’s every chance it is available at one of the many gyms, health clubs or playing fields. Call your friends after a hard day at the office and unwind, or set-up interplay leagues at the weekends. Female-only spaces and classes are also available. Clubs and parks are also availed to trainers and experts to guide people, young and old, so skills can be improved and talents nurtured. There’s also a recreation centre operated by ADNOC offering the very best in squash, swimming, badminton and hall facilities.
