Welcome to the International Club of Ireland
"Hands across the net, friendship across the ocean "
To set the game above renown,
To love the game beyond the prize,
To honour, while you strike him down,
The foe that comes with fearless eyes,
To count the life of battle good,
And dear the land that gave you birth,
And dearer yet the brotherhood,
That binds the brave of all the earth.
-Sir Henry Newbolt...
We hope that you, and those closest to you are keeping safe and well in such unprecedented and uncertain times. Communications will be an important way of managing this crisis and coming together as an IC Community, as always.
The health, safety and well-being of our members is always our top priority. Therefore, we’ve unfortunately had to cancel or postpone a number of events. The cancelled IC Council-supported events this year include so far:
The IC Celebratory Legends Event in South Africa - postponed to 2021
The Potter Cup in Barcelona - 2020 event cancelled. Further information on 2021 event to follow.
The CQS IC June event in Prague (4 nations) - 2020 event cancelled. Further information on 2021 event to follow.
Please look out for the notices that host ICs are sending out to you about their events.
Major tennis events, some with which we have been associated closely for nearly 100 years, are also being changed or cancelled. We will adjust our calendar to the changes of other major tennis events. The EC Meeting at Roland-Garros will move to September. We are waiting still for news on The Championships at Wimbledon. We will take a decision on our AGM, which takes place on the middle Sunday of The Championships, when we have news from the AELTC.
Many of our IC of Japan members have been very engaged in the preparations for the now postponed 2020 Olympic Games. We look forward to Tokyo hosting the Olympics in 2021.
Please continue to check back here for further updates.
