Just under 250 guests enjoyed the 2018 IC Ball at the Grosvenor House Hotel. 

The guests included the touring IC South American team from Argentina, Chile and Uruguay. Notable guests included Philip Brook Chairman of the All England Lawn Tennis Club accompanied by his wife Gill and Chairman of the IC Council Peter McQuibban with his wife Annegrethe plus many supporters of the IC.  

Mark Cox President of the IC of GB proposed the toast to the guests and covered a range of topics including 50 years of Open Tennis and the 150 Anniversary of the All England Club. Mark introduced Sergio Elias a member of the IC of Chile and of the South American team who are the IC of GB pre Wimbledon guests. Sergio is a well known Tennis Administrator and is currently an ITF main board member and he spoke most eloquently on behalf of the guests. 

Following the speeches Benson Greatrex presented the IC of GB Sportsmanship Award to Christine Janes. Christine said a few words of acceptance and related a couple of highly amusing anecdotes from her early days as a player. 

The Ball went well with an extremely good band providing the entertainment and the new venue proving to be a success.
