GWA has an extensive range of top-class sports facilities that are used by students in our three educational divisions PYP,MYP and DP. We have an Olympic-size 50m swimming pool with 6 racing lanes; each of the lanes having diving blocks at either end. The pool depth ranges from 1.8m to 3.4m. To complement the main pool, a smaller training pool is situated on one side that varies from 0.5m to 1 m for use with our youngest students or for those just learning to swim. Both swimming pools are fully shaded and heated for year-round use.
There are three tennis courts on the roof which are flood lit as well as sun-shaded, along with a fully equipped skateboard area. The multi-purpose sports hall includes a competition standard basketball court that hosts a variety of activities from basketball and volleyball to netball and badminton, among others. Around the peramter of this hall is retractable seating for those attending major games and activities.
Located next to our sports hall is the Junior Gym, that facilitates a very teacher-friendly environment with our very young students. Opposite the Junior Gym is our Fitness Center.
This has a variety of cardiovascular equipment, running machines, steppers, rowers, bicycles, and a full range of weight training equipment. GWA provides both pool (wet) and dry changing rooms with private shower facilities.
We also have an 8m high Rock Climbing Wall (the largest fibre glass wall in the UAE) with true rock features in place. Two indoor, air-conditioned, courts in the sports hall.
Outside we have a 400m weatherproof rubberized running track that circles a full sized astroturf sports field where a variety of activities take place, including rugby and soccer/football, baseball and rounders. Our track also has jumping pits for both the long jump and triple jump.
