The UAE will be up and active on 16 February as National Sports Day returns to our great country, and the biggest event in the capital will be at Zayed Sports City. This mega-festival will include tons of free opportunities to explore activity and healthy living that will help improve the wellbeing of the nation.

This celebration will include more than 15 activities for everyone to participate in. School children will open the event with a run around Zayed Sports City Stadium and an open day opportunity to explore some of the UAE's favourite sports. Following the kids portion, the event will open to the public at 4:00 p.m. for everyone else to join. Until 10:00 p.m. offerings will include football, basketball, tennis, fitness, ice skating, bowling and more. There are special activities aimed at children as well as sessions for ladies only on the schedule as well.

The ever-popular ZSC booth will be set up as well, giving people the chance to win prizes on the wheel and one of three iPod Nanos in the main draw.

This event is completely free to attend and everyone is encouraged to come out in support of the UAE's vision for health. Follow ZSC on Facebook to learn more.
