IC of Ireland Celebrates Its 25th Anniversary

DUBLIN, JULY 2022

The IC spirit of friendship across the net was in full flow under the glorious sunshine in Dublin last weekend as the IC of Ireland celebrated its 25th Anniversary. Near neighbours, the IC’s of GB, Belgium and Luxembourg provided the opposition in this high quality and entertaining fixture played on the lawns of Carrickmines Tennis Club.

The tie included two local derbies (Ireland v GB; Belgium v Luxembourg) where superb, competitive tennis was on show for the spectators. In true IC style, friendships were cemented at the various social functions which included a taste of real Irish hospitality at the Merry Ploughboys pub. Traditional Irish music and dancing enthralled the visiting players who enthusiastically sang & clapped along all evening. Fitzwilliam Tennis Club hosted a wonderful function to round off a memorable few days of tennis, and crowned the IC of GB champions of this anniversary fixture.
