IC OF FRANCE

French turn the tables...
Result: IC of GB 9 - 24 IC of France
Event Date: Saturday 23rd – Monday 25th May 2015

Congratulations to our friends at the IC of France who after several consecutive losses put out a very strong team and managed to turn the tables on the IC of GB - reclaiming a trophy they haven’t seen for a while…!

The annual fixture took place at a new venue of La Boulie on the outskirts of Paris this year. It was a superb club and we had the benefit of sole use of their six courts with dinner also held in the main club room afterwards. The outside terrace overlooking the golf course proved to be a stunning setting.

IC Captain Toni Thompson and match manager Mark Beim both gave speeches (with a little French thrown in for good measure) and an impromptu sing along from Lewis Barnes certainly added to the evening entertainment!

Two days of tennis were followed by another amazing day at Roland Garros. We would especially like to thank Thierry and Daniel for organising the match and the IC of France for being such wonderful hosts.
