Expat Clubs and Societies and Sports Associations

Clubs and Societies

There are many social and sports clubs in Bahrain that expats use in order to meet new friends, get fit and socialise. Because Bahrain has so many expats these clubs are generally welcoming to all. As with any country that has an influx and transience of people there are also unofficial meet up groups such as coffee mornings, ladies clubs and book clubs that operate on a word of mouth basis. EW has listed some of the most popular clubs and societies for you.

Bahrain Round Table

Bahrain Round Table

Bahrain Round Table, is a small group of like minded individuals, who come together on a twice monthly basis. Our goal is to give back to the less fortunate within the local community. We are able to do this by raising money through hosting the Bahrain Marathon Relay event each year. A task that is no small undertaking. But as big as it is, the rewards are equally worthy. The Marathon Relay is an annual event. This year’s event will be held on Friday November 16th.

Caledonian Society

Awali Caledonian Society

Messrs Cameron, Rollo Smith, Somerville and Wyper first requested the use of the BAPCO club, for a private function on the 30th November 1935. It was from this gathering that the seeds of the Caledonian Society in Bahrain was sown. The first official function of the society was to hold a 'St Andrew's Night Dinner' on the 30th November 1936. By all accounts this was a small affair, referred to as a "dinner" rather than a "dance."
