S is for Sporting Club

Sporting clubs are the place to be – for those who can afford the fees – on weekends, after school, and especially on holidays like the one coming up (6th of October). The clubs offer various sporting facilities and training – swimming, football (soccer), tennis, water polo, gymnastics, weight lifting, track and field, karate, squash, hand ball, and more! This is a photo of one of the entrances to the Ma’adi Sporting and Yacht Club, which opened in 1921. While I much prefer swimming in the sea, I do miss sipping the LE 1 lemon juices in their green gardens!
