The initial idea of the International Club was conceived at the 1923
Wimbledon Championships, when a former British Prime Minister, Arthur
Balfour, was chatting with Wallis Myers, an outstanding writer on lawn
tennis. Uppermost in Balfour's mind was the prospect of promoting
international goodwill by friendship across the net. Meyers, was not
one to let such an opportunity pass, and on the 26th November, 1924,
the I.C. of Great Britain was formed. In the following year, steel
grey and pink were selected as the Club's colors. The I.C. was to
foster friendship, pure and uncommercialized.
