Situated between the French Open and Wimbledon Grand Slam tennis events, the AIC’s Annual Tennis Competition is growing in both popularity and participation. A number of participants, fans, and guests keen to see the Club’s athletic talents on display attended this year’s event held at the woody confines of the Tennis Club of Geneva on July 1.
Held on a grey, overcast day which luckily kept the temperatures mild, this year’s event featured 14 players – 9 men, 6 women – participating in various doubles matches in a round-robin format. The event ran from 10am-3pm, and included a lovely 3-course, post-match lunch served by the Tennis Club.
Amid an avalanche of aces, broad smiles, and aching knees, the AIC Tennis competition was chocked full of humorous moments, graceful shot-making, and some competitive matches, too.
AIC Sports Chair Mark Mason organized the event and presented the awards to players at the post-match lunch. It was eventful day of athletics, prizes, food and refreshment, and lots of fun all around.
This year’s competition was sponsored by La Tour Hospital, a long-standing Corporate Partner of the Club and a leading health and medical supplier to Geneva and the surrounding region.
