Fantastic Four off to Mexico City

The year was 2013, when gold was won for The Bahamas by the Fantastic Four:  Donte Armbrister, Jacobi Bain, Sydney Clarke and Elana Mackey at the “Inaugural ITF/GSDF  12U Team Championship” for the English-Speaking Caribbean in Jamaica.

Now four years later, the Fantastic Four have come together one more time to represent their country at the Compass North American IC 16 and Under Junior Challenge in Mexico City.

The 3-day tournament will be held at Club Raquetas Bosques.  Our IC Bahamas Junior Team will play in a round-robin format in singles and doubles events each day against two teams from Mexico and one from the United States.  It is expected to be a very competitive tournament. The winning team will advance to the Compass Worldwide Finals in Tokyo, Japan October 8 – 12, 2018 with winning teams from other continents.

The Team, captained by Mr. Kit Spencer, President of IC Bahamas, departs Nassau this Saturday and returns on Friday, November 10, 2017.  Monday is the official practice day together with a philanthropy clinic for local ball boys.  Our Team will assist with the clinic as a form of “giving back”. Match play begins on Tuesday.

The trip is being sponsored by the company Compass, IC of The Bahamas and IC of Mexico.  The Council of International Lawn Tennis Clubs has as its slogan, “Hands across the net, friendship across the ocean”
