Saudi Arabia to Allow Women’s Sports Clubs

Saudi Arabia is to license women’s sports clubs for the first time, al-Watan daily reported, in a major step for an ultra-religious country where clerics have warned against female exercise…

Watan said on Friday the Interior Ministry had decided to allow women’s sports clubs after reviewing a study that showed flaws in the existing system.

You would think that the General Presidency of Youth Welfare, the government organization responsible for regulating sports in the country, would be the body to have the last word on this.
