IC of GB v IC of Germany

By Benson Greatrex ( Match Manager)

We took a strong team of 7 players including IC Captain Jeremy Bates to play Germany in Frankfurt. The IC of Germany managed by their President Alex Kurucz and helped by Secretary, Peter Dinckels and others put on a marvellous weekend for us based at the TC Palmengarten. Surprisingly on the excellent clay courts we were 5-2 up after the singles. In the end after Doubles and Mixed Doubles we won the newly presented Dunlop Trophy 8-5. My thanks go to our team , Lozzie Jelfs, Karen Whishaw , Mark Beim , Jeremy Bates, Paul French and Keith Bland not to mention the IC of Germany.
