Find out here about our history, who we are, and what we are doing in the tennis world.
Our Club was born out of the desire to preserve friendships and promote goodwill between players and countries, upholding the values of sportsmanship and fair play, with Australia’s legendary champions Adrian Quist and Frank Sedgman two of the driving forces.
Frank was President for many years, continues to be involved now as Patron, and also as President of the IC Council internationally. Paul McNamee succeeded Frank as President, then Geoff Masters was at the helm until January 2019, when Kerryn Pratt became the first female President of the ICA.
Our Club brings people together, organising events in Australia and around the world with our 39 worldwide counterparts, providing tennis, travel and social opportunities.
We are an alumni group, former players, teaming up with other significant contributors to tennis here in Australia and overseas to accentuate and build on all the positives the game offers.
As a Club, we are grateful for the opportunities tennis has gifted us and now wish to give back. The IC helps underprivileged young people access tennis, and also assists retiring players transition to life after the tennis tour, with advice, networking and a helping hand.
We hope you enjoy exploring our new website.

Hard to believe but the tennis got even more exciting and with record numbers of tied matches, third set tie breaks and mixed doubles deciders.
In group B Israel came through as the winners but only after a very close match with Slovenia who were one point off taking them to a mixed doubles decider. The other three teams all ended up tied with one win each. So Slovenia, Austria and Spain went in to a series of mixed doubles deciders. Spain got the draw in to their three nation play off final with Slovenia winning the semi final over Austria and then went on to win The mixed doubles with Spain. So placing s in that group: Israel , Slovenia, Spain and Austria.
In the other group Italy won against Germany to top the group with Germany then taking fourth spot. This left Great Britain and Ireland to compete for second and third spots. Once again it got tied at three matches each with Ireland winning the mixed doubles decider.
So play offs on Friday will be :
Italy v Israel
Ireland v Slovenia
Great Britain v Spain
Germany v Austria
Another record was set with well over 100 restrings done already after so many long and closely fought matches. In the evening the juniors enjoyed a Tennis Quiz set by our hosts Germany at the evening dinner - winners Spain this time. It is Karaoke for the final night dinner!
