Hi Chris, i play in Safa Park just off the sheikh Zayed road.....hit me back if you want to meet up and go down...it can be a little hit and miss as regards quality of basketball but overall you always seem to get a game

I have been living in Dubai (Jumeirah Beach Residence) for the last month, and I find it extremely hard to believe that there is no gym or a basketball court in the entire mini city (Dubai Marina) !

How can that be? 40 towers at JBR housing thousands of people, and yet no place to work out?

Other buildings have gyms, but they are strict about reserving it for their own residents.

Does anyone know if there is any place to play basketball (in the Marina)?

I saw some kids bouncing a basketball, I thought there might be one close to here. But this is ridiculous.

Does anyone know what the cost of Fitness First at Ibn Battuta is, or anywhere in Dubai for that matter? We're moving to Dubai soon, and my wife and I both belong to gyms in New Zealand. We pay about $100 each per month, which is about Dhs 250 each per month.

Thanks

A 12 month membership at Fitness First set me back 4500 dhs. It cost a little more to pay by the month. In the Dubai explorer book it list heaps of gyms in a table and gives a guide as to prices so it is a good to compare.

With a name like Bulls 96, I imagine you are. I'm keeping my eyes peeled and when I get there next week, I'll let you know what I find.

Wish me luck!

I live here. I will have a look around the labor camp tommorrow and see if I can spot any. I know they put water in the pools but can not imagine a woman going to swim in them, even with her husband (which I dont have)... Interesting if we do have courts. I know someone said they had 'finished' a few of the tennis courts, but they were locked up so you couldnt use them :confused2: Got to love discovery ghetto.

Thankx Jynxgirl.
I drove around over there and didn't see anything except for taxis. But I also missed the tennis court and pools. I was probably at "The Garderns" and not "Discovery Ghetto". LOL
Basketball courts are usually near the tennis courts. And i'm not afraid to climb a fence to go play ball.

I just googled the area and it doesn't seem far from where I'm planning to stay. Hopefully we're not seen as another set of "invaders". Lol at jumping the fence. Thanks Bulls and Jynx for scoping out the area.
