I'm Joining the Matkot March

Yeladim -- girls and boys -- it is HOT, HOT, HOT!!!

What to do? Go to the beach of course! Swim, snorkel and play Matkot.

From the sandy shores of Rosh  Hanikra...

all the way down to Ashkelon's beach and harbor...

kids are marching to the beach to play Matkot.

Ping, ping, ping. That's the sound everyone associates with Israeli beaches. A small black ball  whacked back and forth by wood paddles. It's kinda like ping pong, kinda like paddle ball and it's all ours -- Israel's national sport Made in Israel. Aside from being a great way to exercise, it's a win-win game. You got it -- nobody loses! You miss the ball? Pick it up and start all over. Want to see? Meet the people who've made Matkot such a special sport.

Have a ball!!!!
