Tennis teaches team spirit and confidence, and through the Freddie Krivine Foundation it encourages integration and equal opportunity for Israeli Arabs in Israeli society.
After many years of promoting Israeli tennis, one of the six founder trustees of the Israel Tennis Centers, Freddie Krivine, President of the Israel Tennis Association, was troubled by the lack of Israeli Arab players. In response, he established a committee in 1998 to introduce Arab children to tennis and to introduce Jewish and Arab children to each other.
Today, the Foundation re-named in his memory, manages more than 20 tennis programmes in towns and villages throughout the country.
Hundreds of children learn tennis as part of the elementary school curriculum and in after-school programmes.

    Categories of Activities:
  • Co-Existence

  • International Friendship
  • Social Clubs

London-born, the late Freddie Krivine was one of the six founders of the Israel Tennis Centers becoming President of the Israel Tennis Association in 1992. The program began with an Arab/Jewish coexistence group near his home where Jewish children in Caesarea were joined by children from Fureidis and Jisr el Zarka. This program continued for ten years, and several of the Arab players became professional tennis coaches, now working for the Foundation and the Israel Tennis Centers . The first court to be built was in Jisr El Zarka. The courts are generally refurbished basketball courts or playground areas, with the necessary extras to make them standard tennis courts. The Foundation has given grants for travel, training as pro coaches and individual competitive training to more than fifty talented players. Today the Foundation is managed by Freddie’s daughter, Jane Krivine.
