Tennis and Golf week in Cyprus

Tennis and Golf week in Cyprus

Five ICs participated in a wonderful tennis and golf week in Cyprus from 3 until 9 November: Denmark, South Africa, Luxembourg, Great Britain and Germany.

Fantastic late summer weather, an excellent 5 star hotel resort (Intercontinental Aphrodite Hills), superb cuisine, a spectacular golf course, a careful organisation (by Alex Kurucz, president of IC Germany) and an atmosphere of great friendship were the general conditions of a successful event.

Prizes were given to the winners of 3 tennis tournaments and 3 golf matches.

Major differences in age were compensated by a handicap system in the tennis doubles. Furthermore, the best players of each IC in each event collected points for a nations´ trophy which was won by IC Denmark with Anne-Sofie Astrup as captain, followed by IC South Africa.
