Rack appointed GB tennis chairman for EMG

Maccabi GB have announced their plans for tennis at next summer’s 13th European Maccabi Games in Vienna.

Greg Rack has been appointed Chairman. He will be assisted by Jan Feldman.

Rack has been involved with MGB for a number of years and last summer he Chaired the largest ever Maccabi GB tennis squad to travel to Israel for the Maccabiah Games.

Although the squad did not experience much success Rack believes that better times lie ahead with a number of promising junior and senior players coming through the ranks.

The trials, taking place on September 5 at Chandos LTC, will be open to anyone who wishes to take part and experience the atmosphere that is created at international sporting events such as the European Maccabi Games. Recruitment is also still open for managers of the Junior squad.

Rack said: “Having had my first taste of international competition at the Maccabiah Games last year, I can’t wait to start the planning for next year’s Games.

"There will be some real quality in our squads based on what I experienced last summer and whilst winning isn’t everything, I am very optimistic about bringing home some medals.

“I’m pleased that Austria is hosting the European Maccabi Games - there is something very special about Jews from all over the world congregating in Vienna and I am excited about the challenges that lie ahead.”
