On the occasion of its 150th anniversary, the Tennis Club Lyon recently organized a CTC Seniors competition group, which saw teams from the Rot-Weiss Berlin and Carrickmines of Dublin joining the host club at the event.
Unfortunately, TC Milano Bonacossa had to default their participation the competition, so the event was turned into a round robin format, giving all clubs the opportunity to play against each other.
The sun was there during the whole weekend and the competition was played under a friendly and enjoyable atmosphere, with all participants joining in with the host club’s Saturday night celebrations of the 150th anniversary.
This was the first time that TC Lyon had participated in such a competition since joining the Centenary Tennis Clubs Association and it was a perfect debut for the club – at the end of the two day event, and captained by Jean Francois Lagloire, the hosts emerged as champions of the tournament. Carrickmines finished in second position with Rot Weiss Berlin in third.
