Community Category

Who can take part in Gov Games Community Category? 

We welcome all 18 years or older, healthy and competition fit. UAE residents with no existing or recurring injuries to give it a shot! This means it's open for all community individuals.

Community Category is all about celebrating diversity and the 1 Team 1 Spirit.

Assemble your Team

No matter how tough you are, you'll need a team that brings out the very best in each other. Each team consists of 7 (5 main and 2 substitutes) players.

The community category participants won't be competing with teams from our pre-existing government entity category, it's a category entirely on its own. More than 90 teams will enter our pre-qualification round, which consists of multiple zones designed to test out your strength, speed, quick-thinking and teamwork. Only 30 qualifying teams will make it to the next phase. The teams can be women, men or mixed gender competing in same category.

The challenges we have lined up for you will push you to your very limits. This time the stakes are higher than ever! We are giving you an opportunity to show the world what you've got, but it's up to you to get up, get out there, and accept the challenge. Ready or not?"
