Great Neck’s Bob Litwin, International Tennis Federation (ITF) World Champion, will coach the 19th Maccabiah Grand Masters tennis team at the Games in July in Israel. The Grand Masters Division is for athletes aged 65 to 80+ years.
After playing Tennis for Great Neck South High School, Litwin did not play competitively until he tried out for the Maccabiah USA Open Tennis team at 32. He did not make that team but made it his mission to compete for the USA at the next Maccabiah Games in 1985. He qualified for the Masters Tennis team at those Games, traveled to Israel for the competition and won bronze and gold medals. Since then, he has become a local senior legend, winning the ITF
World Championship and 14 USTA National Championships, achieving the #1 World ranking in 2005 and being an eight-time member of the USA Senior Davis Cup Team.
“Returning to Israel to coach and compete as a member of Team USA at the Maccabiah Games is very important to me,” Coach Litwin remarked. “Tennis and Judaism are two of my passions and the Maccabiah Games provide the perfect opportunity to combine them. I hope to help all members of our team compete to the best of their ability and enjoy the magic of Israel.”
