Palm Resort / Rugby Club, Al Ain

The Rugby Club at the Palm Resort is a very popular destination for ex-pats. It’s located at the far west end of Al Ain, on the way out to Abu Dhabi. (It’s about a 15-minute drive from the Hilton Hotel.)

Here are some photos for you.

I went along with a friend to a quiz night many moons ago and the place was packed to the gills. We had great fun. Check it out, if you haven’t already.
