Hi,

Bahrain gives a lot of importance to sports, specially football. Other than football, Cricket is played widely. Hockey, Basketball, Volleyball are also played a bit.


Are sports facilities easily accessible there? Where and how can one find sports clubs in the region?
Sports clubs are spread across Bahrain

Are there sports events regularly held in the country?
Local tournaments yes.

And you? What is your favourite sport? Which one(s) do you practice in Bahrain?
Swimming/ Cricket/ Cycling. I dont swim or regularly cycle depends on the weather and company. Cricket we usually play during good weather (September-March) on weekends.

football is the most popular sport in the kingdom since most of the Bahrain's engage into this activity in from of support , or activity participation due to large presence of foot ball clubs like stira, Manama , isa   amongst other clubs where they compete for the league title

Also on the local scene cricket is also a hobble in Bahrain due to large presence of expatriates from cricket loving nations of India , Pakistan , Bangladesh etc

My years of stay in the kingdom have not seen boxing , tennis ,badminton , netball
