Having a Ball

Youngsters play football on the Busaiteen coast on a hazy and dusty Bahrain evening weekend. Sport is a major past time for hundreds, with groups seen at every available open space. Though football and volleyball are popular among locals, the “gentleman’s game” of cricket is played by
