The Club was established for our employees and their families to provide them with an appropriate facility for spending their leisure time in relaxation. The Club is about our employees engaging in social, cultural and sporting activities, and about developing social relations amongst staff members.
The GPIC Club endeavours to continue maintaining its existing facilities, amenities, infrastructure, support and interaction with its members with the aim of developing a unique social lifestyle.
The 12,000 square metre club is strategically located in Al Eker Village. It is situated away and free from the hassles of work, and in a secluded spot where you can take in the refreshing ocean breeze and enjoy the scenic beauty.
Once at the club, recharge your batteries by utilising the various facilities being offered and engage in the diverse social, cultural and sporting activities.
Our Management have always placed great emphasis on maintaining high motivation and morale levels amongst employees. The construction of our Club and its facilities is yet another example of how we reflect our company’s values and objectives.
