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.
The Committee of the IC Of Australia
The Council of International Clubs is considering producing cufflinks with the IC logo, if sufficient demand can be identified.
The design reflects the recent and very successful lapel pin, but is smaller (1.5cms) and the cufflinks are secured by a swivel clip.
They come in a small box and would make an attractive IC gift for events such as the Windmill, Juego de Pilota and Columbus Trophies or simply for IC members’ personal use.
If your IC would be interested in ordering a quantity of these @ £10 / $13 / €12, per pair, plus postage, please email Julian Tatum (IC Council) who will coordinate your orders (delivery is approx 8 weeks)
