Manama, Bahrain: The Chairwoman of the Bahrain Olympic Committee's Women’s Sport Committee, Shaikha Hayat bint Abdulaziz Al Khalifa, will travel to Kuwait on Friday to attend the 18th meeting of the GCC Women’s Sport Organising Committee. Scheduled to take place on Monday at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, the meeting will be chaired by Shaikha Naima Al Ahmed Al Sabah of Kuwait.

The committee will discuss several important issues, such as Oman hosting the 4th GCC Women’s Games in 2014 and finalising the dates for the 3rd GCC Women’s Handball Championship in Qatar in 2015. Other subjects of interest include organising the 2nd Women’s GCC Youth Volleyball Championship and the 3rd GCC Women’s Youth Basketball Championship.

Shaikha Hayat, who is also attending the opening ceremony of the 2nd GCC Basketball Championship during her stay in Kuwait, hopes that the meeting will bring several fruitful results to contribute to promoting GCC joint action in the field of women’s sport.
