The Origin

The Dubai Tennis Championship was held in the Aviation Club which had only a few hundred attendees. The ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Ali Maktoum felt the need to build a better stadium with more capacity. Thus, shortly after the 1994 edition of the Dubai Tennis Championship, he declared that they will build a new stadium with a capacity of about 5000. And in 1996 the new Dubai Tennis Stadium hosted the Championship. Along with the new stadium they built a watering hole for the attendees of the Tennis Championship. Thus, the Irish Village got introduced to Dubai.
