First ever QOC Beach Games showcases legacy of ANOC World Beach Games
The first ever QOC Beach Games got underway on 20 December at Aspire Park and will run until 2 January with more than 500 athletes taking part.
The Games is a community event and aims to build on the legacy of last year’s ANOC World Beach Games Qatar 2019 which showcased beach sport to the Qatari public and a global audience. Athletes will compete in four beach sports, football, handball, volleyball and 3×3 basketball, all of which were a part of Qatar 2019.
The Opening Ceremony of the QOC Beach Games was attended by the QOC Secretary General HE Jassim bin Rashid Al Buenain, Aspire Zone Foundation CEO Mohammed Khalifa Al Suwaidi and presidents of the national sports federations.
The event is one of the community events and activities organised by QOC each year to promote health and physical fitness.
