City Swim to Make a Splash in the UAE

City Swim, the open water swimming event is launching in the UAE with four fantastic events taking place across the Emirate this year. Originating from Amsterdam, the UAE will host the biggest series of open water swimming events the country has ever seen with over 200 swimmers expected to take part at each stunning location. Swimmers of all abilities and ages will take the plunge in swims covering a range of distances in Dubai, Sharjah, Abu Dhabi and Ajman between October 2016 and March 2017, with further locations due to be added in 2017.


The first of four City Swims will take place at the Sheraton Jumeirah Beach Resort in Dubai on Saturday, 8 October, 2016, followed by Sharjah at the Sheraton Sharjah Beach Resort & Spa (26 November), Abu Dhabi at Le Meridien (21 January) and Ajman at the Ajman Saray (4 March 2017).

The organisers of the event invite everyone from beginners to experienced swimmers to join in what will be a new and unique series of swimming races in the UAE. All swims are classified into different age groups with distances varying from 250 meters to 2,500 meters. Each swim will be suitably manned by expert kayakers who will be at hand every stroke of the way and a post-race celebration will take place for everyone that has taken part including friends and family. 

Spokesperson for the event said: “The launch of City Swim UAE is testament of the growth of the sports event market in the UAE and the wider Gulf region. The number of new sports and competitions are increasing year by year and we are committed to delivering a fantastic and safe experience for all swimming abilities across a number of locations in the UAE. Partnering with some of the best resorts gives us great confidence that each event will be a huge success.”   

City Swim UAE is approved by the UAE Swimming Federation.
