Fujairah Competing in Inter-Gulf Netball Tournament

Fujairah has entered a team in the annual Inter-Gulf Netball competition being held in Al Ain this weekend, 4-5 March 2011.

One of the Fujairah players, Charmaine Lim, said, “Our team is made up mostly from teachers from the Fujairah Private Academy and a few mums like myself. We are entered in the Women’s Social Category and most of our matches are expected to be played on Friday and Saturday between 9.00am and 5.00pm.”

A total of 28 teams will be competing at Al Ain’s Hilton Hotel. The teams will represent Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Bahrain, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Fujairah.

The Inter-Gulf Netball Championships is known as one of the longest running sporting events in the world and the tournament in 2011 will notch up its 23rd year.

Entrance at the Hilton Hotel venue is free and spectators are encouraged to attend and cheer on their team.

Hopefully updates from Fujairah’s team in Al Ain will be posted on this page throughout the weekend.
