According to its website, one of the fastest emerging racket sports globally is Padel Tennis. It is a fast-paced game that combines action with fun and social interaction. A mix between tennis and squash, it is an excellent sport for players of all ages and skills, as it is both quick and easy to pick up. Played on a glass court, doubles or singles, Padel was designed with its own rules and points system! Most players get the basics within the first half an hour of playing to enjoy the game.

Moreover, the sports venue has five panoramic Padel courts, each measuring 20m x 10m. A group can rent tennis balls and rackets on location. A valid UAE ID will be required for equipment rental and returned upon returning the assets.

Visitors should prepare for an adrenaline-pumping and action-packed basketball game at the venue’s top-notch basketball courts. Whether one plays to win or for fun, its basketball facilities are the best place to hone one’s skills in a safe environment. The sports venue has two basketball courts of international dimensions, each measuring 28.1m x 15.2m. Same as other courts, players can rent the ball on location.

Volleyball is a team sport in which a net separates two teams of six players. Each team tries to score points by grounding a ball on the other team’s court under organized rules. It has been a part of the official program of the Summer Olympic Games since Tokyo 1964.

To play Volleyball with friends, the team can book one of the two courts, each measuring 28.1m x 15.2m. The same rules apply to renting the ball and the court.
