The True #1 Sport of Israel.... and its King
If I asked you what the #1 sport in Israel is, you'd likely tell me soccer/football. Perhaps you would say basketball due to our recent success in the sport. But if you asked the man on the street, there is only one correct answer. Matkot - aka - paddleball. And there is one guy who is the undisputed king of the court. Amnon Nissim. I kid you not... he even has a museum of paddles in Tel Aviv (hey, Israel has more museums per capita than any country in the world - so we have to possess a few really exotic ones). Check out this clip of Amnon - and then a video I filmed myself a few months ago of what may be the next big sport in Israel - soccerballtabletennis. Yes, you heard that right.
