Danube Group launches new indoor sports facility


November 8, 2022 | By RetailME Bureau

Dubai-based diversified family-owned business Danube Group soft launched Danube Sports World – an indoor sports facility set up on a 200,000 sqft plot of land in the shape of a massive, inflated dome, next to Habtoor City and Aykon City on Sheikh Zayed Road.

The 25 metres high temperature-controlled inflated dome features indoor cricket, padel tennis, badminton, football, table tennis and boxing courts and comes with 150 car parking facility. The courts are equipped with features such as cameras to livestream game, referees to monitor next game and much more. It has ample lockers and changing room facilities, first-aid clinic, a gymnasium and a café.

“Innovation will determine the success of businesses. As an innovative and forward-looking business group, we constantly try to innovate by incorporating new ideas into action – that leads to creating new business verticals to help our clients,” said Rizwan Sajan Chairman and Founder of Danube Group. “Danube Sports World is an innovative idea that has now been executed to benefit our clients. There is a big demand for such facilities, however only a few have set up indoor sports facilities, which are small compared to the existing demand.

The launch of Danube Sports World takes place at a time when the Dubai Fitness Challenge gets underway to help people get back in shape. Fitness is, indeed, a booming market. For perspective, between now and 2028, the global fitness industry is expected to grow at 171.75% to $434.74 billion.

“This is going to be the most popular go-to sporting and recreational centre in the UAE where consumers are now trying to mix sports and recreational facilities as part of their socialising process,” stated Adel Sajan, Managing Director of Danube Group, who came up with the idea to set up Danube Sports World.

“Most people want to try to do some sporting activities even when they socialise. Sports is gaining popularity in the UAE and GCC as a medium of socialising and healthy activity and this trend is going to grow as a global phenomenon. We are the first one in the Middle East to set it up – to fulfil a widening gap. We have all got together here today to not only experience this beautiful structure but to also witness this amazing introduction to the padel community in Dubai.”

Danube Sports World partners with Emirates Padel Centre to be its Official Padel Operators and introduce the Bela Padel Concept in Dubai with none other than the legend himself Fernando Belasteguin. This partnership will bring together the best padel community in the region to provide the best padel training.
