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.
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.
