Bahrain Olympic Committee board member Shaikha Hayat bint Abdulaziz Al Khalifa said the Kingdom of Bahrain’s participation at the Third Arab Women’s Clubs Games is in line with the His Majesty the King’s Representative for Charity Works and Youth Affairs, Supreme Council for Youth and Sports Chairman and Bahrain Olympic Committee President Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa.
The third edition of the games is scheduled to take place from February 2 to 13 in the UAE and is organized by Sharjah Women’s Club.
Shaikha Hayat, who is also chairwoman of the Woman’s Sports Committee, said Shaikh Nasser’s directives aim to promote the kingdom’s reputation in international events and to contribute to support joint Arab programmes in all areas, including the sports field.
“Women’s sport has achieved tremendous successes in the Kingdom of Bahrain as our heroes succeeded in bringing off a series of outstanding results and achievements at all levels,” said Shaikha Hayat.
“In the Third Arab Women’s Clubs Games in Sharjah, we look forward to boost the experience and accomplishments made by women’s sports over the past years thanks to the support of the wise leadership of His Highness Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa”.
Shaikha Hayat also commended the support offered by Youth and Sports Affairs Minister Hisham bin Mohammed Al Jowder to national sports clubs, which granted them an honorable participation in regional championships.
She also noted the significant efforts and contributions of Bahrain Olympic Committee general secretary Abdulrahman Askar to the women’s sports committee, tasked at preparing national women’s teams for such competitions.
“We are so pleased to see Sharjah host the upcoming edition of the game and I personally would like to wish them every success in organising this major regional gathering, which is no strange for the affiliates of Sharjah Club who have vast experience in organising sports contests,” added SShaikha Hayat.
