The Arab Games, also called the Pan Arab Games, are a regional multi-sport event held between nations from the Arab world.
They are organized by the Union of Arab National Olympic Committees.

The first Games took place in 1953 in Alexandria, Egypt. Intended to be held every four years since, political turmoil as well as financial difficulties have made the event an unstable one.
Women were first allowed to compete in 1985.
