Get Fit at Swan Lake

With a whole host of unique sporting activities, Hassan Allam Properties' Swan Lake is shaping up to be the go-to development for sports and fitness

Staff Writer

Its almost summer and its time to get out of the house and get fit. New Cairo's Swan Lake, one of Hassan Allam Properties' signature developments, has launched a series of sporting events designed to give you the perfect beach body.

First up is Padel Tennis, a unique concept imported from the sun-kissed beaches of Spain and Latin America. The sport has been described by some as "tennis on acid." The extreme game is played on an enclosed court about half the size of a tennis court adding to the intensity, pace and excitement. In other words, it's same, same but different. You have to keep your eyes on the ball as it bounces around the cage while trying to score the same way you would in normal tennis. The courts, which will be opening very soon, are the first of their kind in Egypt, so if being the first is your thing, stay tuned to find out when they're ready for business.

However, if you are something of a tennis traditionalist, Star Tennis Academy is running a two week tournament from March 15th also at Swan Lake, which is fast becoming the go-to place for professional sports in Cairo. The bout is open to all abilities genders and age groups including men, women and junior players.

If you really can't stand all of this racquet (Get it????) then CrossFit Stars are holding intensive competitions every Saturday during March. Anyone is welcome to register to these competitions held at the development's professional crossfit facilities, designed to condition the whole body, incorporating many different disciplines and fitness regimes. The top runners will go on to participate in the international CrossFit competition due to be held later this year.

So get off the sofa and get down to Swan Lake, summer is just around the corner!
