KUWAIT, May 5 (KUNA) -- Chairperson of the Kuwait Women's Sports Federation Sheikha Naeema Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah said she was "optimistic" over the success of the Women's Games, due on May 9.
The event, which will host several local clubs, is set to include basketball, table tennis and athletics, and Sheikha Naeema regards its organisation, in itself, a major success for women and sports.
The games will pit female athletes from six local sports clubs - the Girls' Club, Al-Oyoun Club, Salwa Club, Qadsiya SC, Yarmouk SC and Jahra SC - for the local competition, held for the first time.
Also, "the games will push forward steps to encourage a well-cultured generation of sports spectators," in all three sports. Sheikha Naeema proceeded to express gratitude for the efforts of the Information Minister and State Minister for Youth Sheikh Salman Sabah Al-Salem Al-Humoud Al-Sabah, in supporting women's sports in the country.
A pre-competition press conference is expected to be held on Monday to officially announce the event to reporters at the Kuwait Olympic Committee headquarters, delivered by Sheikha Naeema. (end) js.sd KUNA 051801 May 13NNNN
