Sports, whether you’re watching or participating in one, is one of the most exhilarating activities one can enjoy. This is evident in all countries, especially in big ones. For instance, the UAE, a wonderful country in western Asia, is becoming one of the most active countries that support sporting events. This is because they put an importance on their fitness and health.
Because of this, there are a lot of multiple sporting events being observed in the country, especially in corporate settings. The government in UAE does not only advocate for wellness but strongly supports it too.
The Rise of Sporting Events in the UAE
There are a lot of organizations that promote and create sporting tournaments in corporations and are receiving good feedback from various firms. Experts believe that there are numerous intrinsic beneficial factors that these sporting events give. This includes having an avenue where employees can escape their routine jobs in the office and indulge in something active, thus improving their overall health and lifestyle. Plus, it helps boost creativity, confidence, competitiveness, and camaraderie.
These advantages will not only benefit the employees singly, but these will also help their respective companies improve and have a greater working environment as employees are motivated, healthier, and happier at work. That’s why most companies are now also including their senior management teams into this active program.
Companies such as Medcare, Talabat, Aster, Dubai Islamic Bank, Daikin, NBD, ECC, and Tageef are some of the most active companies where their seniors are joining and trying their best to frequently participate in the said programs. Even companies and groups from Emaar offplan projects Dubai and District One Residences by Meydan are joining the fun.
Despite competing with younger groups, the seniors and the rest of the participants, regardless of their ages and who wins or loses, feel that they have this sense of belongingness. Plus, these programs make the participants feel like they’re a part of something great.
Currently, Fit On Click is hosting their 3rd corporate football tournament which is sponsored by a lot of supporters. Because these events are becoming a trend in UAE now, tourists and locals alike are taking part in these sporting activities by watching or participating as well. In fact, as the popularity of sports rises in UAE, residential areas lower their prices to accommodate the influx of visitors in the UAE. For instance, Meraas Sur la mer prices are now lower compared to before. So, this means that adopting an active lifestyle does not only benefit a small demographic but also a huge chunk of the UAE’s residential communities.
