Whether you want to go rock climbing or canyoning, play Frisbee or football, get ready to meet the UAE’s best clubs and groups at TryDubai this February.

Moving to a place like Dubai – whether you did it ten days or ten years ago – means more often than not the need to make new friends, find new fun, join in new things – and there’s no better way to do it than by joining a club. And that’s where we come in…

Taking place at Barasti on Friday February 10, What’s On presents #TryDubai – the UAE’s first official gathering for groups, sports clubs and active brands.

Join a club. Meet new people. Get involved.

#TryDubai is our way of bringing together people to make new friends and have some fun with sport, hobbies, and all kinds of great activities. Similar to a Fresher’s Fair, #TryDubai will host the city’s most popular clubs and groups from yoga shalas and sports clubs to comedy troupes and active apps and bring them all together in one glorious location.
