History
The city of Ofakim was founded in 1955 by Jewish immigrants from North Africa, Iran, India and Romania. Located in Southern Israel and a mere 15 minute drive from Beer Sheva, Ofakim is one of Israel's most impoverished cities. The city's unfortunate socio-economic situation is the main reason the Israel Tennis Center decided to open their 11th Tennis Center in Ofakim. As an organization committed to empowering children through the medium of sport, our top priorities are to reach out to Ofakim's youth and introduce them to programs for all ages including the Kindergarten Program, Mini Tennis and the Advanced Program. When visiting Ofakim, recommended sites includes the early Ottoman castle of Fatish and Ofakim Park, which is filled with beautiful flora and fauna and includes a cave that served as an ancient water gathering spot.
We invite you to visit the Israel Tennis Center in Ofakim. 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!
