IC Week 2022 - Windmill Trophy

Fixture: IC Week Windmill / Orsini 

Venue: Chevy Chase Club, Washington, USA

Result : 5th out of 8 teams - winners of the Consolation (Orsini Trophy)


Match Report:

The IC of GB team were very privileged to travel to Washington DC to represent the Club at IC Week. The team consisted of two open age group players (Ben Draper and Tom Wride) and three over 45 players ( Pieter van Houten, Simon Bramwell and Adrian Blackman).

The event was based at the magnificent Chevy Chase Club and we started our campaign against a very strong US IC side. We battled hard but in the end lost 5-1 on the day, our only win being an excellent victory in the open doubles.

Having lost on the first day, our next target became the Orsini Trophy (the consolation)! Our the first two singles, it was 1-1 (with victory for Ben) and then we secured fine victories at both number 2 singles. Both doubles were tight and our Open pair played with great skill to secure the overall 4-2 win.

In the final of the Orsini Trophy, we faced Luxembourg. After losing the first two singles, the situation didn’t look too positive but we won the other two singles with gritty performances to put us back on track. We then finished off the week with a flourish by winning both doubles to win the match 4-2 and in doing so become Orsini Champions!

We all spent a fantastic week in Washington, and were hosted fantastically well by USIC. Thank you to everyone involved!
