“Sportswomen and women employees in all sectors are major actors shaping the innovative landscape of Sharjah’s inclusive development process. Their contributions are key to enhancing the overall appeal and competitiveness of women’s sports in the emirate.”

She added: “We are steadily working towards creating a vibrant sporting environment for women characterised by the active engagement of women employees from all sectors. They are role models for their peers, and boost SWS’s efforts to promote the importance of playing sports for success in both professional and personal endeavours.

“We want to popularise these messages further with this edition of the cup, and we are hoping to see the women to bring their best game to it.”

Established in November 2016, under an Emiri decree issued by His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah, SWS aims to empower national women athletes and develop human capital in the field of women’s sports.
