HistoryThe city of Arad was built in the 1960's on the outskirts of the Judeah Desert. Known throughout Israel for its clean air and hypnotic desert landscape, thousands of visitors pass through Arad every year on their way to campsites in the desert or a dip in the Dead Sea. The ancient biblical city of Tel-Arad, which is home to an impressive archeological site, also attracts many visitors who come to learn about the Iron and Byzantine ages through the city's archways and structures. The Tennis Center offers a variety of tennis programs for children, beginning and advanced players ages 18 and up and subscribers/members. The Tennis Center also caters to groups of children-at-risk, who arrive at the Center in the afternoons and receive a warm meal and help with homework. We invite you to visit the Israel Tennis Center in Arad. Come and play, meet the childen we serve, receive sight-seeing tips from our staff and experience the excitement we feel every day. Join us!
