Danes too tough...
Result: IC of GB 8 – 13 IC of Denmark
Event Date: Friday 26th – Sunday 28th September 2014
Anne Clark, Niall Sweeney, David Waite, Tim Phillips, Mike Carroll, Chris Clark and David Collins represented the IC of GB against a strong IC of Denmark team, which included a member of their Davis Cup squad. Although Anne Clark won all of her matches without conceding a set, the Danes secured the overall match by 13 rubbers to 8 on clay courts at the Rungsted Tennis Club just outside Copenhagen.
The hospitality of our hosts was first class and a special thank you goes to Mikael and Kristine Bernhoft who organised a very enjoyable welcome party at their wonderful house on the Friday night, followed by the official evening at a spectacular restaurant by the sea with great views and excellent food/wine.
Hans Peter Michaelsen was invited to become an Honorary Member of the IC of GB and the IC of Denmark reciprocated by making Anne Clark an Honorary Member of the IC of Denmark.
