Empowering Israel’s Children…Beyond Tennis and Beyond Borders

Founded in 1976, the Israel Tennis Centers (ITC) is one of the largest social service organizations for children in Israel, serving over 20,000 Israeli children every year. The ITC’s 14 centers stretch from Kiryat Shmona in the North to Beer Sheva in the South. Many of these centers are in underprivileged neighborhoods, providing disadvantaged children with a safe, structured and nurturing environment.

The ITC offers uniquely designed programs to meet the specific needs of its children:

  • Social Impact: assisting youth at risk, those with special needs such as Down Syndrome and autism and children of new immigrants from Russia and Ethiopia
  • Coexistence: bringing together Israeli Jews, Arabs, Bedouins and Druze to play and learn
  • High Performance: training Israeli children to excel as tennis players.

All of these programs are open to all children living in Israel, regardless of background, religious affiliation or economic circumstance. No child is ever turned away.
