Sports | Cricket in Kuwait

Sport is an important component of the Socio-economic development of a country and in Kuwait, the most popular sport played is Football. Even though the popularity of Football is at its highest peak, another sport that has evolved and engaged the masses is Cricket.

Kuwait has been an associate member of the International Cricket Council since 2005, having previously been an affiliate member since 1998. They are currently ranked tenth amongst non-test teams in Asia. In recent years, the popularity of cricket has been constantly rising and is set to overtake Football and may even be Kuwait’s most well-known sport in future. There are many well-reputed organizations who organize cricket tournaments, the most popular being-Kuwait Cricket. The well-known recent tournament was KGL T-20 Premier League which was won by Super-XI team (Division D) on 13th April 2018.

To enhance the bonding between Kuwait and Cricket, Friday Boyz is organizing a grand cricket tournament in Kuwait. Friday Boyz is a dream team of the founder, Aleem Parkar, and organizing this event is a great start to a future cricket career. There will be 24 teams fighting in a knock out match to reach the finals and receive the golden trophy. The proud sponsors of the tournament are Porter Express, Rosha Sugar, Ryukers and LastHalt.

Ryukers, along with the other sponsors, wishes all the best to the participating teams and may the best team win.

The Hook | A Real Boxing Gym in Kuwait

Boxing and Muay Thai are my favorite sports even thought I go once every blue moon, but when i do so I enjoy it all the way. I was doing boxing when I was living in California for few years, and when I came back to Kuwait. I didn’t find a real boxing gym, which was really disappointing. Then luckily The Hook Boxing Gym opened in Kuwait, and I joined for 10 months total. I really enjoyed training with the legendary Art “One Glove” Jimmerson, he created an amazing environment. The one who pushed me beyond my limits is the amazing couch Mahmoud. The Gym is also kids friendly, and my relatives are sending their kids to train and they are really enjoying training with couch Mahmoud.
