Description:

Bearing the name of UAE president Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyn,...

Bearing the name of UAE president Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyn, Khalifa International Bowling Centre lives up to high expectations. Purpose built for the 1999 FIQ 14th World Bowling Championships, recent renovations and updates have ensured it remains a bustling sports centre that is enjoyed by all. Featuring 40 Brunswick lanes, bowling becomes accessible to everyone, from beginners who require automatic bumpers or ball ramps to professional bowlers, including the UAE National Bowling Team and those who will join the World Bowling Championships in 2014 and 2015. Enhanced by 13 billiards tables, six table tennis tables, a video arcade, three restaurants and two pro-shops, Khalifa International Bowling Centre is truly a destination for sport enthusiasts.

In addition to walk-in availability, memberships are on offer for avid bowlers. Likewise, leagues and tournaments are happening nearly every week. It's a popular spot for birthday celebrations and a favourite treat for school children. There is something for everyone here!

Went ice skating here a couple of times. Hard to imagine ice skating in the middle of a UAE summer, and at 45 AED for about an hour and a half - two hours. First session was just the Sunday session, the second session we attended was the disco session on a Friday (from memory). Cost more for the disco... More

We went to the Mubadala World Tennis Championship and had a really enjoyable experience. The seats were wide and comfortable with enough leg room. The stadium was very hot, even though the temperature was lower here (about 23), as all the poor people seats are in direct sunlight for the whole afternoon. If they are going to have events in...

We attended the Mubadala World Tennis Championship which was held on the last three days of December 2017. The stadium is fabulous - the seats are all very comfortable and there is plenty of room between each row so one does not have disturb others when trying to get to one' side seat. The area outside the stadium where there... More

We booked 25 bowling lanes for our corporate tournament and arrange buffet dinner at noddle bowl restaurant. The place is spacious and we enjoyed our tournament. Foods from outside and not allowed. So you have limited selection of food chain and restaurants. Over all I recommend this activity for family, friends or corporate activity.

Clean, well organised during an event, as I watched the tennis tournament. Lots of parking in the area.

Zayed Sports City was a little hard to find because we chose the wrong entrance with the GPS. Once we got to the correct location it was a great time. Not really sure why this place doesn't get more advertisement. We went just to go bowling but we will go back again before the end of the vacation to try... More

I regularly go to the International Tennis Center here. Good courts and pro shop, which strings racquets. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very nice locker room and snack bar area. If you want a true and good sports massage, ask for Lynn. Nice pub as well.

Great sports venue didn't have time to use all facilities but ice rink is great as is bowling alley. The restaurant above alley is excellent and great value.
