In January 1981, the International Club of Brazil was founded by the then President of the CBT (Brazilian Tennis Confederation) Gabriel Carlos de Figueiredo, and by the president of the Uruguayan Tennis Association, Max Mainzer.
With the death of Gabriel Figueiredo in the same year, Eugenio Saller, considering the creation of our International Club of utmost importance, continued to work with Alcides Procópio, together with tennis players friends of the International Clubs from other countries, Eugenio managed to get Brazil to become a member of The Council of International Lawn Tennis Clubs, London on 1st July 1982.
