IC of GB Verses IC of France – 149th Match, 22nd - 23rd May

It was a very close run thing. We played at a new venue / club in Bois de Bolougne, which was even more lovely than the racing club! The French were great hosts and well run by Michel Le Clerq as normal. I think we can be very pride of our efforts this year, as I was concerned / worried that we were going to be thumped after our first year on clay last year! We lost by one match but it was a fantastic weekend with a strong friendly atmosphere between our two teams.
