The LTTC Rot_Weiß hosted the CTC Seniors Competition in Berlin from the 8th to 10th September 2018. A total of four teams took part, including the host club which was joined by Carrickmines CLTC, TC Geneve and RST La Magdalena.
Glorious sunshine and a remarkable atmosphere of friendship characterized the event. The welcome dinner on Friday and the Gala Dinner on Saturday gave the players the opportunity to become aquainted and gave rise to intensive talks about tennis and much more. Two days of excellent tennis matches provided enough time to establish new friendships, investigate the night life of Berlin and even to take a bath in the lake which belongs to the club.
The event began with TC Geneve competing against RST La Magdalena. The teams were inseparable and a mixed doubles had to decide the winner when the tie reached 4-4. TC Geneve eventually claimed the win. The next match saw Carrickmines and Rot-Weiß face off, with the host club winning 7:2.
The tournament winner was therefore decided between TC Geneve and Rot-Weiß, with both teams showing a great level of play. Even former professional players were activated for that match on both sides. Finally TC Geneve was the winner by a score of 5:4.
All in all, the competition was a great success. The participants enjoyed the international experience and the really friendly atmosphere.
