TEAM Blasters defeated Mosanada by eight wickets in the final to emerge as winners for the second straight year at the Aspire Zone Foundation’s (AZF) cricket tournament last week.
AZF Events Manager Abdullah Al Khater, AZF Ramadan Festival Organising Committee member Al Anoud Al Misnad and Oooredoo events department representative Ali Al Mutawa attended the presentation ceremony.
“The cricket tournament’s popularity last year made it an obvious choice for inclusion this time. We once again saw a tremendous turnout from the Asian community members, with the number of participants and spectators growing further,” said Al Khater.
Meanwhile, seven teams are fighting it out in the Women’s Volleyball Tournament, being organised in collaboration with the Qatar Women’s Sport Committee.
Team Al Rayyan’s Jawaher Taher said, “The tournament gives us an opportunity as national-team players to practise and evaluate our performance against other strong teams.”
The AZF is once again collaborating with the Qatar Paralympic Committee to organise table tennis competitions for people with special needs in three categories — for people with learning disabilities as well as visual and hearing impairments.
Sixteen teams are seen in action in the football tournament.
More than 1,300 local community members will participate in 11 tournaments held at the AZF’s world-class facilities. This year’s events are sponsored by Ooredoo and Saleh Al Hamad Al Mana Co. DSP
