Almost 1,100 employees participated in this year’s Dubai Duty Free Bowling Tournament finals as part of the operator’s Dubai Fitness Challenge initiative.

Some 35 of the leading teams battled for the top honors on the final day. All the teams from the four shifts and general offices enjoyed the games immensely with new bowling records established, the retailer said.

Commenting on the event, Tahlak enthused: “The Sports and Social Committee at Dubai Duty Free, which organizes this event, has always been extremely active and it is great to see so many of our staff actively involved with the tournaments, whether as players or supporters.”
