Dubai Duty-Free Tennis Championships

Game, set, match! The 25th Dubai Duty-Free Tennis Championships has arrived and with it brings the most talented international players we’re usually used to seeing on our TV screens. We all know that sitting and watching the tennis ball go backwards and forwards is exhausting work so make sure you fuel your day with some much-needed carbs at nearby 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria or St Tropez Bistro.
Eat the world DXB
Where: Burj Park
When: February 23
Get your elasticated trousers ready because you won’t be able to resist eating plate after plate of different types of dishes from all over the world. With local home-grown UAE street food, a selection of Singapore’s authentic street food vendors, the very best food trucks from the UK and USA, along with activities and entertainment (complete with outdoor cinema) for the whole family to enjoy this is one great festival. Make a full day out of it and treat the kids and yourselves to a bit of creativity at the newly opened Soul Art Center, or for those that crave a little more adrenaline then take them to the epic SEGA Republic.
Abu Dhabi Electric run
Where: Gateway Park, Yas Island
When: February 24
Whether you’re a treadmill hogger or a couch potato this is one run you’ll love participating in. Known around the world as being a 5km run like no other, The Electric Run combines a mixture of lights, lasers and banging beats. Plus the beauty of this 5K is that there is zero pressure! You can run, walk or simply dance your way through the 5K course. You could even pop to Yas Mall beforehand for a leisurely bite to eat at Giraffe Yas Mall or Shakespeare and Co.
Remember you can use your ENTERTAINER nearby at all of these events so you can really make a day out of it! Have a great weekend everyone!
