Dubai: Dubai Ladies Club (DLC), a member of Dubai Women Establishment, on Saturday hosted an Open Day for Emirati women to mark the occasion of Emirati Women’s Day.
It held activities to celebrate the health and well-being of guests through a wide range of fitness and recreational exercises. The highlight of the day was a private gathering of elderly Emirati women, aged 60 and above, from Thukhur Social Club. About 20 senior Emiratis were honoured for empowering future generations of UAE women.
As always, Dubai Ladies Club’s Open Day provided complementary access to its exclusive outdoor facilities, which includes the only private ladies’ beach in Dubai. Guests also enjoyed massage, a tanning bar, stand up paddling and other activities.

Lamia Abdul Aziz Khan, director of DLC, said: “Inspired by the steadfast dedication of Her Highness Shaikha Fatima Bint Mubarak, Chairwoman of the General Women’s Union, Supreme chairwoman of the Family Development Foundation and President of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood, to highlight the status of UAE women as pillars of their communities and empowering generations of Emirati women to harness their potential as key players in the continued success of our beloved nation, this year we paid homage to Emirati women who have lived all their life by giving the best to our great country. They are role models to the young generation who can all follow their path and learn the art of giving unconditionally.”
She added: “We understand that adopting an active lifestyle is an important aspect of personal development for all women, regardless of age. Dubai Ladies Club was founded on the vision of Shaikha Manal Bint Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, President of Dubai Ladies Club and wife of Shaikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs, as a private haven for women to enhance their physical and mental well-being, and pursue their interests in a safe and nurturing environment.”
