TEN­NIS JONATHAN Bar­nett helped the VLTC of Great Bri­tain draw 4-4 with Is­rael at the in­au­gu­ral match at Mac­cabi Za­fon in Tel Aviv.

The Mac­cabiah Games vet­eran was vic­to­ri­ous in a sin­gles match that last more than two and a half hours, win­ning in a third set tie-break.

The Is­raeli team in­cluded Gabi Du­bit­ski who had pre­vi­ously rep­re­sented Is­rael in the Davis Cup. But his big match ex­pe­ri­ence counted for lit­tle as he was beaten.

A re­turn match is ex­pected to be sched­uled in Lon­don within the next 12 months.
