The Israel Tennis Centers premiere tennis center in Ramat Hasharon was named on Monday in honor of Larry and Mary Greenspon.
The International Board, living ITC Founders, Dr. Ian Froman and Dr. William Lippy, the Israel Davis Cup squad and many others gathered to mark the occasion. Larry was first introduced to the Israel Tennis Centers when he competed in the International Maccabiah Games in 2001. After winning his first silver medal for the men’s 50s division in doubles, Larry returned to the US, and became deeply engaged with the organization.
Since 2001, he has chaired 15 years’ worth of ITC exhibitions in the Sarasota Longboat Key Communities, hosting each team of ITC junior tennis players in his home. Larry has also been a long-time member of the ITC Foundation Board in the US, the International Board, and is past international chair of the organization. Greenspon's generosity is evident throughout TC-Ramat Hasharon, including the Greenspon Clay Court in honor of his parents, the Greenspon Restaurant Pavilion and the Greenspon Entranceway. With his most recent donation, the center has been dedicated in his and fiancée Mary’s honor.
