The Bahamas IC retains Gene Scott Trophy with win over USA

The Bahamas IC retains Gene Scott Trophy with win over USA

A strong Bahamas IC team which included its most successful Davis Cup player over the last decade, Devin Mullins, and its most successful Fed Cup player Larikah Russell over the same period beat the USA to retain The Gene Scott Trophy. This was a sweet result for The Bahamas who had lost to The USA earlier in the month to be beaten in to second place at its own  Bahamas IC International Doubles Week.

The event was held at The fine 21 court Wellington Tennis Centre, Palm Beach, Florida which former tennis great and IC member Dick Stockton manages. Dick was present throughout the event but unfortunately for The USA , and maybe fortunately for The Bahamas, Dick was injured and unable to play. 

The Bahamas team consisted of 6 men and 4 women playing  in a variety of age categories including one mixed doubles with all players in the 70's.  Gene Scott as well as an outstanding USA tennis player was highly involved in many aspects of tennis including his own well known Tennis Magazine and founding The Kremlin Cup.  Gene was a leading personality in the IC movement and was instrumental in helping to found The Bahamas IC where he also had a home.  At the event and playing was his wife Polly who told us of a major project in The New York area to build courts for poor communities that is a continuing tribute to Gene's legacy in the tennis world.

As well as some excellent tennis played in the true IC spirit of "Hands across the net, friendship across the ocean"  there were two enjoyable dinners.  The last of these held at The Wellington Equestrian Centre where the largest USA winter show jumping event was taking place while we ate. The Bahamas has already been warned by The USA that they intend to recruit a strong team for next year's return match !  The Bahamas looks forward to that.
