The Green Sports Hub by Ebbe Sand at Jumeirah Golf Estates

Former Denmark international footballer Ebbe Sand is to develop a sustainable sports hub at Dubai’s Jumeirah Golf Estates, home of the DP World Tour Championship.

Complete with a zipline, skateboard park, research centre, a hotel and food and beverage outlets, the centre is designed to boost sports tourism to Dubai and is due for completion in late 2018.

Part of Jumeirah Golf Estates’ Phase A, the 500,000sqft Green Sports Hub by Ebbe Sand will include a sports academy, climate lab, swimming pool, indoor and outdoor climbing walls, martial arts training centre, sports research facility, a spa and an area for sports physio.

The eco-friendly development is modelled on sustainability and is complete with solar power, waste management and water perseveration and reuse systems, with the likes of its skateboard park designed to act as a reservoir to collect and direct any rainwater to the surrounding greens.

Yousuf Kazim, CEO of Jumeirah Golf Estates, said: “Jumeirah Golf Estates is already a thriving community of families and international visitors, and the launch of Green Sports Hub is a milestone development.

“Through the development of Green Sports Hub by Ebbe Sand, we are committed to supporting the UAE’s sporting stars and aspiring athletes, by providing them with a platform to excel at all levels.”

Project founder Sand added: “As a resident of Jumeirah Golf Estates, it is an honour to contribute towards the high quality facilities that the community has become known for, whilst also providing a first class framework for training and exercise.

“Through the Green Sports Hub, I look forward to bringing extensive and varied sporting facilities to Dubai, as well as to creating a vibrant and multi-functional sustainable attraction that is used as a social and educational resource among local and international visitors.

“The Green Sports Hub will be a community that inspires a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle.”
