Germany win Wallenberg Trophy

Germany win Wallenberg Trophy

The Amiens Athletic Club greatly appreciated hosting the 22nd edition of the "Wallenberg Trophy" on February 25 and 26, 2023. Despite the withdrawal of the Swedish team, the IC of France were able to put together another competitive team with two members of the International Tennis club of France and two local players.

The four teams (France A, Great Britain, Germany, France B) met around the traditional welcome cocktail. The meeting took place at the AAC, created in 1904, on traditional clay courts. The club is located in the Henriville district, 5 minutes from downtown Amiens.

Very professional and serious teams in their pre-match preparations proceeded to long warm-ups because the temperatures were very cold on the courts. The players had at their disposal a magnificent sports hall. What could be better than a mix of generations as well as a transmission of the IC spirit.

After some tough competition and an unfortunate injury from the French A team in the final, the IC of Germany won the deciding mixed doubles to win the 22nd edition of the Wallenberg trophy! The French A team finished second, Great Britain in third and the French B team in fourth.

The games were of a high standard and everyone had a very pleasant and friendly time on and off the courts. Many thanks to the IC of France, particularly Carla, Bruno and Patrice for hosting a fantastic weekend.
