“Hands across the net, friendship across the ocean”


The IC South Africa is part of a worldwide network of clubs which make up the last surviving, truly amateur, institution dedicated to the promotion of the game of tennis.  It provides opportunities for players to put something back into the game during and after an active playing career, all the while encouraging  friendship and sportsmanship.   The members are predominantly players who have played internationally but also include administrators who have made a significant contribution to the game.   Membership is by invitation.

There are presently 38 member countries of the IC Council, all of whom foster goodwill and fair play in the social and competitive events organised by the Clubs.   We trust that this attitude and the love of the game will be passed onto others and particularly to our young players.           

We hope that you, our members, will find the website useful in planning your calendar around our events!   Remember that you belong to a wonderful international family of tennis players who share the same vision of promoting the game of tennis.
