Residents and visitors who participated in the National Sport Day celebration at The Pearl-Qatar got unique treats from retailers and organisers as well.
In a statement, United Development Company (UDC), the master developer of The Pearl-Qatar, said retailers like Niya Yoga at Qanat Quartier offered free yoga sessions while Gymmito and Strongbox extended complimentary fitness classes and tryouts.
Such freebies and activities aimed to help people of all ages to get active on NSD, which featured an array of fun-filled games for everyone, according to UDC.
UDC cited The Pearl-Qatar’s vast open spaces, lush green areas, and beachfront, in addition to its amenities, as a preferred location for indoor and outdoor sporting activities.
“It is one of the most awesome exercise I have done in about four months, it was great, and I think I will try it with my family,” said Gina Malave, an American expatriate who joined a unique tic-tac-toe exercise game with some parents. Indian expatriate Prabhas Kumar said the morning rains and drizzle added the perfect ambience for the National Sport Day.
The event also featured several other sport and recreational activities such as aerobics, pool football, basketball, wall climbing, strike out game, replay racing, giant dart, treadmill, bikes, steppers, action roller tables, table tennis and xbox Kinect stations.
