The first place was won by the Administration team, followed by the team from Plants Operation and the Maintenance team for third place. 


In a statement, Company President Dr. Abdulrahman Jawahery said such competitions during the holy month are an occasion for family gatherings and bring together members of society. He praised the Company’s role during the holy month in organizing various events that contribute to strengthening relations and increases ties of familiarity. He said these also contribute in encouraging employees to engage in sporting activities that stimulate the body and increases its efficiency, especially during the month of fasting, when many are idle and refrain from exercise, while consuming excessive food.
