Mission Statement

In June 1949, the Council of International Clubs placed on record that the regulations and administration of the game, and of lawn tennis in general, was not the function or concern of International Clubs but that International Clubs should aid their respective National Tennis Associations in every reasonable way. The Council also emphasized that the game of lawn tennis and all that it stands for in promoting international goodwill and comradeship truly be served by close co-operation of International Clubs with national associations, and vice versa.

Description

Many Clubs assist the young tennis players of their own country by taking them on matches abroad or holding competitions for promising young players. Many regard the I.C.'s as an opportunity to retain their links with the game and an opportunity to put something back into the game after an active playing life has come to an end. Most clubs will entertain visiting players on the occasion of their country's major tournament. At Wimbledon, the I.C. of Great Britain holds a Reception at the Hurlingham Club and gives a Dinner Dance on the weekend before Wimbledon. The I.C. of the United States participates jointly in a dinner during the US Open with the International Tennis Hall of Fame. The IC Clubs of Australia and New Zealand host dinners during their National Championships.
