The calm and relaxing environment of Tennis Club Odense was the location of a Centenary Tennis Clubs Association group competition during the weekend of September 10-11, 2016.

The competition saw only two participants – TC Padova from Italy and the hosting club. Unfortunately, two other teams, one from Ireland and one from The Netherlands withdrew some days before the matches.

The event for CTC member clubs, each of which has more than a hundred years of tradition, includes senior players aged 35+ and 45+ in both men’s and ladies’ categories.

The action saw former finalist TC Padova score a good win over the Tennis Club Odense 7-2, losing just one women’s 35+ singles and a mixed double 35+ match.

The social side of the competition also included an official dinner at the Club where the Tennis Club Odense staff prepared a lovely meal with several courses and offered Italian wine as a welcome gesture.

The atmosphere was perfect for a mixing of culture and a real interchange among all the players and their teams.
