Attend a family fun day on JBR
Make the most of the weather with this Friday at the fun Family Day at the Hilton Dubai Jumeriah in JBR. The Family Day combines weekend relaxation for parents and high-energy fun for kids – hosted by kids’ sports club, Kevin’s Academy, together with Just Play.
Expect enthusiastic sports coaches onsite to teach sports and football to kids, as well as fun activities to take part in, such as the ‘Soap Football Challenge’ on the ‘soapy pitch.’ A soft and soapy surface is laid onto the soft sand of the beach and kids will undoubtedly have fun slipping and sliding around on while they’re scoring goals!
Children can either enjoy the swimming pool with you or play regular beach football and beach volleyball under the supervision of professional kids’ coaches, while parents sit back, relax and enjoy the weather with a cool drink!
Details: 9am-1pm Friday 22 March. Suitable for families with kids age 4-17 years. Entry is priced at AED 150 per family, or AED 100 per adult along with free entry for kids. Entry includes access to the swimming pool, towels, and games. For more information, contact Kevin at Kevin’s Academy on +971 50 947 1898.
