As befits a sporting club of it’s size Bahrain RFC has a number of changing facilities all of which are being renovated over the summer after a long year of use.
Bahrain RFC boasts a certified 25m training pool with wide surrounding areas most popular with the club’s many sun-worshippers.
This summer has also seen the addition of a children’s pool, poolside bar and terraced area, alongside the newly extended gym, for the younger members to enjoy.
Gym & Weights Room
Already boasting an extensive array of weight training equipment the club’s weights room is to undergo an expansion this year which
will see it double in size and add a range of Cardio equipment.
The new Expanded Gym will over look the new Children’s Swimming Pool and Poolside Terrace Areas that are being built as part of the same project.
Children’s Play Area
Our Children’s Play area boasts a permanent array of equipment imported from the US and is targeted at the Club’s under 12s.
It has a custom designed safety flooring and is scheduled to have a new shade placed over its entirety in the Summer.
The terraces area and wide pathways at the front of the club are busy areas throughout the Autum, Winter & Spring months with numerous members choosing to take in some fresh air whilst visiting the club.
The clubs popular Carnivores and Carvery nights often see large tables of al fresco diners once the restaurant is full. Another benefit of these areas has been in the regular hosting of live entertainment with a variety of bands brought in by the club regularly.
The Restaurant currently seats 60 people and was, alongside the club’s kitchen, given a complete refit in the summer of 2010
The restaurant provides an upscale dining experience for those members who may be entertaining friends or guests whilst the same team make a wide range of bar food available throughout the club.
Recent legislation, and in the interest of the comfort of our members, brought about the necessity to create a separate bar facility for the clubs smokers.
The Bar has a scaled down range of beverages & is strictly for over 18s only.
That said it still has access to the full array of the clubs satellite sports and entertainment facilities and has capacity for well over 100 on a busy night.
The Clubs Main Bar and Club Room boasts one of the biggest and most popular bars in Bahrain serving a diverse range of food and beverages from around the world.
Match Days and Larger Social Functions will see anything up to two hundred people using these rooms whilst the others congregate on the extensive terraces at the front of the clubs main building. The Bar also has access to a wide range of satellite & internet driven sports coverage and as a result the club regularly has multiple live sports events being shown throughout its premises.
Whilst the Bar Area is relatively modern the attached club room is due to undergo a major refit in the summer to incorporate a more family friendly lounge feel.
