It’s the first ever ANOC World Beach Games and it’s happening right here in Qatar!
This October 12th -16th Qatar will be hosting the first ever world beach games and we couldn’t be more excited! The event is due to be a spectacular show of talent demonstrated by athletes from all over the world competing against each other for places on the podium.
There will be over 1,360 athletes flying into Doha to participate in this event which is the first of its kind, making it even more of an achievement for Qatar. The athletes will be competing across 16 different disciplines, 14 of which are beach or water-based activities, including (what we are most excited about) wakeboarding and waterskiing.
Other activities will include kitefoil racing, open water swimming, beach volley ball, beach wrestling, beach tennis, and many others! There will be something for everyone and the timing promises perfect weather to attend these exciting outdoor events, many of which will be held right next door to our very own headquarters at Katara Beach!
