IC of GB vs IC of Switzerland, 16th - 17th January 2010

We had a party of 8 travel to Geneva to compete in the first fixture of the year against the IC of Switzerland. The Swiss produced a very strong team and there were some very close matches contested on the Saturday at the Country Club.
 
The match was left poised at 6-4 to the IC of GB after the first day and after a lovely evening including the official dinner at the Country Club, the Swiss altered their order for the Sunday and brought in one of their top juniors to play. This produced some fantastic matches but the IC of GB held on to triumph 9-7.
 
Everyone enjoyed the tennis and the hospitality offered by the Swiss IC and we look forward to welcoming them back to the UK to play on the grass at some point in the future.
 
We made Susanna Villaverde an Honorary International member of the IC of GB.
