"In Basel We Founded Maccabi Zafon"

new immigrants from Europe, mainly Germany and Austria. When tennis coach Herman (Zvi) Laufer came to the country, he and Benny Deutsh took upon themselves the task of founding the club.history

It all started with 3 sand courts, a small hut of 8 square metres which served as a dressing corner, storage cupboard for tennis racquets and shower, and a small bench for 8 tennis players. From these humble beginnings, true friendships were created that lasted a lifetime …
