Booking Enquiry

To apply for the hire of Oryx International School facilities please complete the form below and submit to our Sports Administrator by email at

Before completing the form, please carefully read the Conditions of Hire. All information requested must be provided. Once received, we will check availability and confirm details of the booking and the payment required to secure the booking.

Accessing facilities / Gates to Use / Signing in process

Access to the facilities of the school will be via Gate 3 on the side facing Barwa City. The leader of any group bookings for example football, netball, etc or individuals wishing to use the Gym or swimming pools should go to the lobby of the auditorium where the Sports Administrator will confirm details of the booking and provide access to the facilities as well as taking payment.

Unless prepaid by bank transfer, payment can only be made in cash. Qatar Airways employees will need to prove their status by showing their ID to obtain the discounted rate.

Users of the Gym and Swimming Pools will need to complete a waiver form to get access as we do not provide a lifeguard or gym trainer, therefore access is at your own risk. We intend to create a scheme whereby we will issue a photo ID once the forms are completed which will act as proof that you have completed the form to avoid having to complete one for each visit.
