The eighth season of the Nad Al Sheba Sports Tournament will be held in the holy month of Ramadan, the organisers announced on Wednesday.

The event will be staged with strict health protocols in place for the safety of everyone involved.

Organised by Dubai Sports Council, the NAS Sports Tournament is the biggest event of its kind in terms of participation and prize money, and has been held every year in the holy month of Ramadan since 2013 at Nad Al Sheba Sports Complex.

The event was not held last year due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic.

This year’s tournament will feature three sports – padel tennis, running and cycling – and competition in each of those sports will involve several categories.

Registration for NAS Padel Championship will start from March 21 through the tournament’s official website, www.nasst.ae, and the official website of Dubai Sports Council -- www.dubaisc.ae -- while registration for the cycling and running championship will open from March 23.

The NAS Run will feature races in different categories across two distances – 5km and 10km. Registration for the event will remain open until April 25.

The running event is open to all men and women living in the UAE, but those taking part in 10km Run should be aged 17 or above, while the 5km Run is open to participants aged 15 or above.

The 75km NAS Cycling Championship will also witness competition in multiple categories like Men’s Open, People of Determination category, Women’s Open, Amateur Emiratis and Amateur Female. There will also be shorter 20km race for juniors.

Meanwhile, the NAS Padel Championships will take place on the majestic Nad Al Sheba Sports Complex courts.
