The sports and recre­ation hub had a busy month, or­gan­is­ing a num­ber of events for chil­dren of all ages and their fam­i­lies.

In April, Aspire Zone held the first edi­tion of the Aspire Beach Vol­ley­ball Tour­na­ment and the Aquathon Se­ries, in an ef­fort to mo­ti­vate kids into tak­ing up an ac­tive life­style. The vol­ley­ball tour­na­ment was over two days and fea­tured 18 teams while the Aquathon re­quired par­tic­i­pants to swim 500m at the Ha­mad Aquatic Cen­tre and then run for 5km around Aspire Zone. In a bid to fur­ther en­gage chil­dren and to en­cour­age them to bond with their peers, Aspire Zone also or­gan­ised an ini­tia­tive for af­ter-school ac­tiv­i­ties - My School in Aspire - for chil­dren aged be­tween 4 and 13 years old as they visit Aspire Zone and take part in a com­bi­na­tion of en­ter­tain­ment, ex­er­cise and ac­tiv­i­ties like theatre, sports, drawing and health aware­ness.
