September 16, 2020

As always, a number of off-campus sporting facilities in and around Dubai were also utilized to facilitate the growing itinerary of sports which the Dubai Corporate Games now features. These included Bowling at the Dubai Bowling Center in Al Quoz, Karting at the Outdoors Kartdrome in Motor City, Golf at the Emirates Golf Club, Cricket at GEMS Wellington Academy and GEMS Heritage School, Badminton at Wellington School on Sheikh Zayed Road, Cycling and the 9km runs at the Meydan track in Mohammed Bin Rashed City and Dragon Boat at the Internet City lake. The Cricket competition format was also upgraded this year to a full 11 vs. 11 T10 format, while an Open Chess competition was also introduced.

With a heavy contingent of fitness buffs and corporate athletes coming together for two fun-filled and action packed days, the multisport tournament went ahead with the aim of promoting team comradery, wellness and a healthier lifestyle. Choueiri Group’s own teams and athletes participated across the majority of the competitions, with the Group’s usual and bustling dedicated lounge and hospitality area welcoming friends, family-members, fans and supporters throughout the weekend.

A number of Choueiri Group teams and athletes also made it to the winners’ podium to collect winning trophies and medals. Ace tennis player Patrick Chucri placed in yet another #1 position for Men’s Tennis Singles this year, while Paul Abou Chacra won the #1 spot for the Men’s Golf 9 Hole competition. The Group’s Ladies Karting team managed a clean sweep, with Katie Lilley coming in #1, Joelle Yazbeck #2 and Daisy Kennedy #3, while Carl Chalhoub and Oliver Saade collected the #2 and #3 positions for Men’s Karting. Rangith Kumar and Roy Matta also won the #3 bronze prize for Men’s Tennis Doubles.

At the closing awards ceremony, Choueiri Group’s Chief Marketing Officer Walid Yared reiterated the Group’s commitment to the event by saying that “In the 12 years that Choueiri Group has sponsored the Dubai Corporate Games, our only regret is that we missed out on the initial first two years which we didn’t get to sponsor”. Mr. Yared stayed on to award the winning teams and athletes with trophies and medals. The organizers also took the time to celebrate the strength, teamwork, sportsmanship, excitement, and fun experienced over the course of the event and congratulated all the participants and sponsors for another great year.

The Dubai Corporate Games is organized each year by High 5 Events and is held under the patronage of the Dubai Sports Council.
