Match Result: IC of GB 18 – 16 IC of France
 Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd October 2016
Venue: National Tennis Centre and AELTC

It was another fantastic weekend with our French friends with the match again being held at the AELTC and the National Tennis Centre. It was a match of the highest tennis standards with many close fought matches. The match was held in the traditional IC spirit and capped off with a wonderful dinner in the Rolex Suite at Wimbledon. With interesting speeches from our IC Captain Alan Purnell, Christophe Bernelle and Thierry Pham. There was also a very entertaining quiz with amusing crowd participation!

Thank you to our host venues and the team for playing and being such a fun group, that fought especially hard to achieve another home win!
