The 2024 season was inaugurated by HE Saeed Hareb, Secretary General of Dubai Sports Council, Mahir Julfar, EVP of Dubai World Trade Centre, former NBA All-Star and three-point shooting champion Dale Ellis, and actor and TV personality Rannvijay Singha.

Organized by Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) in collaboration with Dubai Sports Council (DSC), the event will run every day from 8 am to midnight until September 8.

Spanning 300,000 square feet, Dubai Sports World offers bookable pitches and courts for ten core sports—football, basketball, padel, table tennis, volleyball, badminton, cricket, tennis, teqball, and pickleball.

The venue also includes summer camps, sports academies, and 'Dubai Kids World,' which features a supervised soft play area, adventure zone, trampolines, giant inflatable slides, and an arts and craft corner to keep kids entertained. Additionally, there's a free gym accessible to everyone and fun family activities like foosball and retro arcade games.

HE Saeed Hareb emphasized that Dubai Sports World has become a leading summer community fitness event supporting active lifestyles across Dubai.

It's an integral part of the city's annual sports and fitness calendar, blending competitive and community activities.
