Al Banush Sports Club

The club is a sports & social centre in Mesaieed. It consists of a gym, tennis court, football Pitch, bowls green and many more indoors and outside activities. It has an outside swimming pool with a slide, diving board & a fabulous hot spa tub.
There are several classes available including spin, karate, football & badminton
The Norwegian school is run from the club and, as most things in Qatar, opens Sunday – Thursday.
I have spent many a sunny day, basking in the sun (and doing my laps) in the pool here. Despite being previously warned about how busy it gets, I have yet to see more than 10 people there!. The facilities are used by Qataris as well as expats and has some time set aside for ladies only, on Sunday & Wednesday evenings and also on Tuesday morning. This is to allow Muslim women to de-robe and to swim and bask in the sunshine.
There is a great restaurant that has a great lunch time & evening menu. Prices are reasonable although service can be a little slow. The bar has a liquor licence is open nightly. Occasionally they arrange special event nights with live bands from around the world.
During April the club hosts the QAFCO Flower Show.
During Ramadan the restaurant caters for iftar, the meal after fasting. They set this out in large tents on the lawns, and have decorated the area with lanterns for the festivities. The restaurant opens to the public with it usual menu at 7.30pm
