QU president Dr Hassan al-Derham yesterday inaugurated Qatar University’s (QU) new gymnasium.
The event, which comes on the sidelines of the National Sport Day, reflects QU’s commitment to motivate and encourage the community members to exercise and practice sports in their daily life.

The new gymnasium, which is located at the Aquatic Centre, is equipped with world-class fitness equipment.
The Aquatic Centre consists of three swimming pools – Olympic pool, diving pool, and learning pool. It also contains a gym as well as a recreation centre, which includes a sauna and hot and cold jacuzzi.
The facilities are available for both QU members and the general community with annual membership.
Dr al-Derham said, “Qatar University is committed to providing its community with a healthy and developed environment. Today, we inaugurated a new gymnasium for male students and we will continue our efforts to develop the university’s infrastructure and increase our support of sports-related activities.” QU faculty, students, staff and their families will celebrate today the annual National Sport Day through a series of sporting and fitness events on the QU campus and at Katara.
