Galilee Sajur

The Israel Tennis Center initiated the building of a regional tennis center in Sajur, a Druze town in the Western Galilee which is home to 4,000 Druze residents. Despite their outstanding record in the Army and the fact that many Druze have risen to national prominence, they have a very low socio-economic standing compared with other ethnic groups in Israel.The contribution of the Druze to Israel's security throughout the years has been immeasurable.

History
Owing to its location, the ITC Galilee - Sajur holds the promise of becoming a flagship for coexistence in Israel. Surrounded by Circassian, Druze, Christian-Arab and Muslim-Arab villages, as well as Jewish towns and the large city of Karmiel, the Center is designed to serve as a meeting ground for the different religious and ethnic communities in the area. Through unique equal opportunity scholarships and programs, the ITC Galilee - Sajur will afford the children of these communities the opportunity to acquire life skills while developing an appreciation for different cultures and religions. A unique feature of the Israel Tennis Center-Galil is a meeting hall honoring and commemorating the Druze heritage to be utilized by children, teens, adults, IDF soldiers, members of the security forces and the Druze community from the surrounding towns and villages.
In addition, the Tennis Center offers a variety of tennis programs for children, beginning and advanced players ages 18 and up, subscribers/members and programs for children with special needs.
