Sports/Events in June

Hi

My son will be in Doha during June/July this year and was wondering if there was anything on during this time. Is there an 'Events' list anywhere he could look at.

Thanks :)

Hi Fj,

The best place to look for events is the local news paper which you can read online in English. They are Gulf Times and Peninsula Qatar

or

It depends what sport. It's very hot in June/July so there are not normally any outdoor events. Try emailing aspire sports zone to see if there is any gymnastics etc on. The problem with the information in the newspapers is it's after the event it's in the paper.

My wife follows:

But I agree with CD, sadly we usually only find out about decent events AFTER the event is finished.

Good luck. :-)

Yes Mark ! Or or on the grapevine ! That's a good website Qatar happening. I would recommend buying the Qatar happening magazine when you arrive in doha or asking the hotel If they have a copy. Another good magazine is time out Doha I buy it from carrefour or virgin megastore,

Thank you all. Have signed up for the online Qatar Happening, so hopefully he can get a feel.

Difficult week for all our Doha - we've been thinking of everyone who's involved with the tragic fire.
