Wallenberg Trophy

Result: IC of GB Finished 3rd

Day 1: IC of GB 0 - 6 IC of Germany I
Day 2: IC of GB 3 - 3 IC of Germany II (IC of GB Won on sets)

Venue: Frankfurter Tennis Club 1914

Our touring team had a fantastic time at the Wallenberg Trophy in Germany this weekend, an annual multi-team competition involving the ICs of Sweden, France (replaced by a second team from Germany), Great Britain and Germany.  Playing on the red clay in Frankfurt the IC of GB put in a sterling effort to finish third overall.

The British team, captained by David Collins, lost their opening match 6-0 to a strong German first team after losing three of the four singles matches in final set 10-point tie-breaks.

However, in the third / fourth play-off against the German II team, the British team came back from a 3-1 deficit after the singles to tie the match 3-3.  Straight set wins for Michelle Oldham and David Collins, as well as Amanda Elliot and Barry Scollo, in the mixed doubles, meant the IC of GB won the match on sets and finished third overall.

The IC of Germany I team beat the IC of Sweden in the final.

Our thanks to the IC of Germany for their hospitality and for hosting such a wonderful event.
