Abdulla Al Tamimi is not only Qatar’s top ranked squash player, he’s also one of the driving forces behind the country’s ambitious potential in sports.

Over the weekend, the Aspire Academy graduate took a step towards fulfilling his vision, launching ATA sports, his very own sports academy.

The launch was attended by several influencers and key figures, including the Director of Education and Student Affairs at Aspire Academy, Badr Al Hay, as well as another member of the Red Bull family, Mutaz Barshim. This suddenly became a chance for the High Jump world-champion to challenge Al Tamimi in a friendly match of Squash.

According to Al Tamimi, ATA sports was formed with the idea of offering a “new approach” to Qatar’s sports communities. The academy’s mission is to create a platform that would allow the youth to explore and develop their skills. The organization’s collective experience entails squash, tennis, karate, gymnastics, swimming and yoga. 

“I was happy to be there and support my friend Abudlla, the idea of creating a sports academy and spread the sport that he loves is amazing, and I think it will have a good impact on the society”, commented Mutaz Barhsim.

This comes after an outstanding 2018 season for Al Tamimi. The 24-year-old broke into the Squash top 30, to achieve a career-best global ranking of 24th.
