IC Week - Windmill and Mercelis Trophies

17th - 20th August 2017

Result: Men finished 7th, Ladies finished 5th
Venue: Tennis Club 1899 Blau-Weiss, Berlin

IC Week 2017 was hosted by the IC of Germany on the red clay of the Tennis Club 1899 Blau-Weiss in Berlin.  The weather was generally kind and the format was two 45+ singles and a doubles, and two open men’s singles and a doubles. 

The team was treated to a fantastic evening on Friday at the palace theatre on Friedrichstrasse for a three-course dinner and to see the show “The One” - an international show involving amazing trapeze displays, dancing and costumes.  

On the Saturday night, there was a Jubilee Dinner hosted by the IC of Germany at the Seminaris Campus Hotel. Barry Weatherill was awarded the IC of Germany Sportsmanship Award, known as the "Gottfried", 'after Gottfreid von Cramm, the famous German Davis Cup player and three times Wimbledon finalist'.

At the Sunday presentation the IC of GB captain, Seb Jackson, was also awarded honorary membership of the IC of Germany.

Special thanks must go to Alexander Kurucz of the IC of Germany for all his efforts in organising such a great event and to Jeremy Woods for agreeing to come and play at the ripe old age of 68 at the last minute so we could field a full team.

Overall it was a thoroughly enjoyable event with great camaraderie amongst our men’s and ladies teams and across the other ICs.
