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.
