Welcome to the IC of Mexico

  
  Welcome to the IC of Mexico Website.


The IC of Mexico was formed in 1974 and today it has about 95 members. 

The IC Mexico regularly participates in many events locally and also around the world. 
Two years ago we were able to send teams to the IC of Luxembourg tournament and also had our Annual Amigos Cup against the IC of the USA in Cabo San Lucas, Florida. We were 3rd place in Luxembourg and the US took the win from us on the last day - congratulations.

We also have single, doubles and mixed doubles tournaments in Mexico for our members. 

We just had a large IC Week in Mexico in April 2014 to celebrate our 40th Anniversary. Please see the news item below with a summary of the event, a link to the Official results document and also a link to hundreds of photographs of the event. If you attended, you might be in some of them !

We are also involved in a Philanthropy project in Leon, Guanajuato to help underprivileged children through tennis. Here is a link 
to a video that will tell you more about our project and other related projects funded by the IC Council. Our project is partially funded by the IC Council and by local individuals and entities. 

We will be gradually increasing the amount of content in our web site, so please visit us again soon.

Philanthropy Project in Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico

The Objective of this project from the IC of Mexico is to help improve the mental and physical health of underpriviledged children through tennis clinics.

The main target for these clinics are public school children from 6 to 16 years old.

We selected the city of Leon, Guanajuato in center Mexico as a pilot for this Project. 60% of its population is less than 30 years old and 50% lives in poverty conditions.    



You can read more detail about the original project here in English and here in Spanish.

The funding for this Project has come so far 50% from the IC of GB and 50% from local (Mexican) sources.

The Project has been succesful. It started in 2011 and has been going for 2 years now. We plan to restart it in August 2013 for the second semester of the year.

We started with 40 children and we grew 50% to 60 children in the second half of 2012.

Here is a video about our Project and other similar projects supported by the IC Council.



Many thanks to the IC Council, to the IC of GB and to the Mexican entities and individuals who have contributed to make this project a reality. In order to continue and grow it, we need continuos funding to keep the Project alive.

If anyone would like to contribute to this Project for underpriviledged children in Mexico, please contact mexico.ic@gmail.com for further information. Thank you.
