Tennis Websites

Welcome to the Official Website of the IC of Australia

The International Tennis Club of Australia - the IC - is Australia’s player alumni.

Our Club was created in 1951 to preserve friendships and promote goodwill between players and countries, upholding values of sportsmanship and fair play, with Australia’s legendary champions Adrian Quist and Frank Sedgman two of the driving forces. 

Today, the IC upholds those same values, bringing current and former players together, organising events in Australia and internationally with our 40 worldwide counterparts, keeping the tennis family connected, providing tennis, social opportunities and giving back to the game. 

The IC’s purpose is to enrich the lives of former tennis players.

Beyond the Tour is an initiative of the IC Australia, assisting retiring and retired players transition to life after the tennis tour, with advice, practical support, networking and a helping hand. 

We also encourage the current player group to think about what life might look like Beyond the Tour.

If you’re a current or former pro player, we hope to see you soon as a Member of the IC, our tennis family.

A successful 40th Anniversary IC Uruguay Event

The 40th Anniversary event for the IC Uruguay marked a post-pandemic return to IC activity in full swing. The event ran over three days, from Thursday morning 31 March (with a welcome Cocktail party that evening) through Saturday 2 April (with a Closing Dinner).

There were five ICs represented - France, Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Uruguay – and a lot of social tennis involving Women´s and Men´s Doubles and Mixed Doubles and combined players from different ICs. Added to all of this there was a Wheelchair and "Integrated Wheelchair Event" and an impressive presentation of the IC Uruguay´s philanthropy program with IC Philanthropy.

A distinguishing feature was the participation of Latin American great former circuit players: Jaime and Alvaro Fillol, from the IC Chile; Vera Cleto, Patricia Medrado, and Joao Soares, from the IC Brazil; Raquel Giscafre, Ricardo Cando, Beatriz Villaverde and Ricardo Rivera, from the IC Argentina; and Fiorella Bonicelli, Marcelo Filipppini, Liliana Rodriguez, Tati Ruiz, Hugo Roverano, and our own Philippe Pinet, from the IC Uruguay.
