IC of GB v Belgium + Czech Republic - St George's Hill

St George's Hill, UK

The second leg of the trip for our pre-Wimbledon guests from Belgium and the Czech Republic took place on Friday 28th June at St George’s Hill on the grass. Given that each team played different number of matches, the results were based on percentage of wins. The IC of GB won on the day, winning 71% of matches.

As always, St George’s Hill put on a lovely dinner in the Tarrant Room, which was attended by the new Club Chairman, Richard Foster. Special thanks to St George’s Hill for welcoming and hosting the IC teams and to visiting captains Fanda Stejskal and Robert Van Malder for contributing to a wonderful match.


GB – 71% (10 matches won from 14)

Czech Republic – 40% (4 matches won from 10)

Belgium  - 25% (2 matches won from 8)
