Netball and Football Sports Tour to Dubai & Abu Dhabi
Sports Tour Overview
Playing competitive girls’ football and netball fixtures and making use of some of the world’s best facilities were just some of the sporting activities embedded in Helsby’s 2018 netball and girls’ football tour to Dubai and Abu Dhabi itinerary. Whilst they were not putting their physical prowess to the test they were able to see all that the Emirates had to offer including making a splash as the Yas Waterworld, soaking up Emirati tradition at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, or simply relaxing on paradisiacal beaches.
The end of tour Desert Safari, with an appearance from local belly-dancers, was a highlight as well as sampling the delicious food, getting henna tattoos and simply experiencing the grandeur of the iconic Yas Mall and Dubai Mall.
