The action is heating up at Dubai Sports World at the World Trade Centre as Corporate Sports’ Summer Tournament heads towards the pointy end.
With over 700 participants representing 18 of the UAE’s top companies, from the private and public sector, competition has been fierce but friendly in the six sports on show – football, basketball, table tennis, volleyball, cricket and badminton.
With a total of 221 matches to be played across all competitions the finals are set down for August 31 with teams desperate to clinch a semi-final berth in the remaining rounds.
One of the players taking part in the latest round of matches was the CEO and founder of Corporate Sports himself, Mohammed Husary, who showed a clean pair of heels – as well as some impressive three-point accuracy - as the UAS men’s basketball team edged out Dubai Health Authority (DHA).
In a thrilling contest Husary made a big impact coming off the bench in the final term to see UAS squeak home, 75-69.
