ABOUT THE IC:

The Council of International Lawn Tennis Clubs, The Council of International Lawn Tennis Clubs, was conceived during the Wimbledon dispute in 1921, in a conversation between the British Prime Minister Arthur Balfour and the renowned tennis writer Wallis Myers. In 1924 the Club was founded in England, and in Brazil in 1982.

In Brazil, ‘’IC – Clube Internacional’’ (as it is known in Brazil), has been promoting relationship events with a lot of companionship and friendship, through tennis. With the objective of promoting tennis around the world, and with the participation of renowned idols of the modality in Brazil, IC developed this event model to maintain not only the high sporting standard, but also to bring players closer to the general public, stimulating each time more the practice of the modality by the new generations throughout Brazil.

With a more current vision, the IC aims to hold events to collect revenue through sponsors and partners, and later allocate to social inclusion projects related to sport.
