Israel Tennis Centers Youth In Florida for 2014 exhibition

 


In its continuing quest to “empower Israel’s children...beyond tennis,” the Israel Tennis Centers Foundation (ITC) announced its 2014 winter exhibitions scheduled for several Florida cities in February and March. This includes special fundraising events at the Academia and Tennis Club Sanchez-Casal in Naples on March 9 and the Longboat Key Club Resort on March 11.

A diverse team of Israeli players and coaches will be flying to the U.S. to meet members of these communities who are interested in learning more about the important work of the Israel Tennis Centers. ITC uses tennis as a tool to improve the lives of disadvantaged Israeli children of all backgrounds, providing them with essential life skills that will allow them to achieve to the best of their abilities.

ITC programs go far beyond helping children become better tennis players. The real focus is becoming better human beings. Through its social impact programs, a wide range of children are served, including youth at risk, immigrants and children with special needs, from autism and ADHD to Down Syndrome as well as those with developmental and physical disabilities. Tennis has the unparalleled ability to bring together children from different religions in coexistence programs, promoting understanding, cooperation and friendship on and off the court.

For more information or to attend the events, please contact ITC Development Director Yoni Yair at 954-480-6333 or yyair@israeltenniscenters.org.
