Ladies... you can go to the club alone, you are not going to be hassled.
Telephone 37398870 for information and directions.
We are open from 2.30pm during Ramadan.
Come and join us, something for everyone and when your spending in the club your helping local charities.
Anyone who has a foreign passport can join?....You must be joking!

How dare you make Egyptians second class citizens in their own country, when you fully well know that a club like this in a European country would be deemed as a racist and discriminatory institute, and will be asked to change its policy or face closure.

As a half-egyptian I find it extremely offensive that my father has to face being treated as a second class citizen in both europe and his own country thanks to narrow minded policies adopted by your club.

Hopefully, the new Egypt will no longer tolerate this and will swiftly see the end of racist policies against its own people, wherever it may come from.

I am fully aware that it would not be tolerated in the western world however the ruling from the Egyptian government is that no Egyptian can be a member of an expat club unless he holds a foreign passport..... Expat club means just that....you are an expat. If the rulers in power decided to change this ruling on the grounds it is discrimination I do hope they remember that the expats in Egypt are discriminated daily. If you are a labour supporter you would not join the conservative social club...

Not sure I would have compared racial segregation (whether due to legal reasons or not) with membership of a political party....

Interesting...is there a logic behind this "ruling" beyond the "no foreign passport so you can't mingle with expats"?

I am well aware that foreigners get discriminated against in Egypt but 2 wrongs don't make 1 right, no matter whose decision it is.

Dude, life isn't fair, welcome to the real world........

I can understand where all the anger in your post is coming from...........But seriously, don't you think you're blaming the wrong people in here.........?

Besides, I am an Egyptian, but I wouldn't change the rules even if I could, everyone in Egypt goes through so much hassled on a daily basis, and I'm sure expats in Egypt go through so much hassle all the time in here as well, so I think they deserve some sh!t free time in the BCA every now and then.........

When did you ever see anything that makes any sense in Egypt? Apart from the Egyptian "sense" of humor I mean?

Seriously though, it probably got something to do with the terrorist attacks back in 1990's, it was really nasty back then and many people died, so I think the "government" didn't wanna risk getting any foreigners killed in their own club(s) in Egypt, cause that would definitely mean that someone would get slapped really hard for that.........

That's the case with most of the areas with heavy traffic of tourists as well, a tourist's "safety" always comes first!

Egyptians are allowed into the club but they cannot be members... I do not see what is wrong with that...there are many places in Egypt I would not have access too...
