SWSF Enhances Community Interest in Sport

The Sharjah Women’s Sports Foundation (SWSF) used its participation in the sixth edition of the Dawahi Festival to promote community interest in a range of athletic pursuits.

SWSF set up a pavilion showcasing a variety of competitive sports including table tennis, fencing, archery and karate, where athletes engaged with festival attendees interested in sports.

H.E. Nada Askar Al Naqbi, director general, SWSF, commented, “[...] One of the core objectives at the foundation is to promote the qualities of stamina, fitness, and skill among Sharjah’s community members, especially women and girls, whether or not they want to make a career out of sports. We hope that through our presence here we were able to encourage women and girls of all age groups to embrace fit and healthy lifestyles.”
