The commencement of the IC Pre Wimbledon event was at Peter Mockridge and Ann Dawes mansion on the Tuesday evening with a welcome party for our IC guests from Argentina and Spain, a great time was has by all and a special thank you to Peter and Ann for their very kind hospitality.
On the match day we once again had to put up with poor weather. The matches started on the grass courts for the first hour and then we had to go indoors followed by the later matches being played on astro courts. The IC of Spain were too good for the other two teams on the day with a slightly younger team which proved to be the key factor.
The presentation of the IC of GB bench to the Edgbaston Priory Club by David Waite to Micky Fallows(Chairman of the Edgbaston Priory Club) for all the support the Club have given to the IC of GB over the years was greatly appreciated by Micky Fallows on behalf of Edgbaston Priory LTC.
The dinner in the evening was a great success with 53 people attending with speeches from the three captains and our IC Captain Benson Greatrex and Micky Fallows. As is usual with the Pre Wimbledon format Carole and Philip Siviter entertained our guests at Stratford upon Avon which was once again a great success.
I would at this stage like to say a big thank you to Edgbaston Priory for looking after us in a very welcome way.
