Israel Tennis Centers Launches 40th Anniversary Alumni Series

The Israel Tennis Centers announced plans to celebrate its 40th anniversary by launching a new series spotlighting the lives of 40 ITC alumni who grew up playing at one of its 14 centers.

​There is no better way to celebrate the Israel Tennis Centers’ 40th anniversary and its impact on the children of Israel than by spotlighting the lives of 40 ITC alumni who grew up playing at one of its 14 centers. That is exactly the intent of the ITC’s new alumni series, in which readers will discover how these extraordinary men and women benefited from the life skills taught by the ITC’s dedicated staff of managers, coaches, and counselors.  

Meet Gil Kovalski…

"I grew up faster and became more responsible, especially when I reached the regional and national tournament levels. I also gained a lot of composure and emotional maturity while learning to cope better with what life threw my way, both on and off the court. The ITC gave me the tools to succeed."

About the Israel Tennis Centers Foundation:

For 40 years, the Israel Tennis Centers Foundation (ITC), a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit organization, has worked tirelessly through the medium of sport to enhance the development of Israeli youth. Since opening its first center in Ramat Hasharon in 1976, the ITC has helped over a half million children, many of whom come from outlying and underserved towns throughout Israel. It is now the largest social service agency for children in Israel. The ITC’s 14 centers stretch from Kiryat Shmona on the Lebanese border in the North to Beer Sheva bordering the Negev Desert in the South.
