The Bahrain Olympic Committee (BOC) has scheduled a sport-filled women's festival around the National Day celebrations.
The festival, scheduled for December 15, will include 10 sports activities around three different venues.
Participants will take part in volleyball, 3x3 basketball, football, handball, table tennis, athletics, judo, taekwondo, karate and jiu jitsu.
Action will be held at the Bahrain Table Tennis Federation, Bahrain Volleyball Association and Bahrain Sports for Disabilities Federation halls, all of which are located at Isa Town Sports City in Riffa.
Activities are planned to begin at 9am and will run until 8pm.
The programme was discussed by a purpose-formed Committee, which held its first meeting at the BOC premises in Seef.
BOC sports federations director Hisham Al Blooshi, projects manager Lounes Madene and those involved in the relevant National Federations were present.
Proceedings centred around Madene giving a briefing on the National Day Festival programme.
Bahrain National Day is the celebration of the country's independence and of the accession to the throne of its first post-independence monarch.
Although Bahrain declared its independence on August 15, 1971, National Day is celebrated on December 16, because on that date the first Bahraini king, Isa bin Salman Al Khalifa, was crowned.
