The ITC – Galilee-Sajur host the Misgav and Nesher tennis clubs
On Saturday 19th May 2012, the ITC – Galilee-Sajur hosted a training day for the children of the center and the children of the Misgav and Nesher tennis clubs. The aim of the meeting was to practice for the upcoming national and regional Shavuot tournaments.
This is one of the many meetings that has taken place at the center in Sajur with the cooperation of these clubs. Every player played at least three best of three set matches. In addition, the children also enjoyed other ball games, they ate together and feasted on local Druze dishes.
Benny Adam, interim manager of the ITC – Galilee-Sajur: “These meeting have become a tradition at our center. Aside from the professional training, the coaches from the local clubs and I, have created a special group bond between these children. You can see their friendship even outside the center. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Asaf Michael from the Misgav tennis club and Ricardo from the Nesher tennis club for their partnership. I am sure we will organize many more great events that will help the players”.
