A colourful look behind the scenes at tournaments including an insightful talk with Ryan Clark, Tournament Director of the Odlum Brown Vancouver Challenger – a combined Men’s and Women’s event which is the biggest and arguably the best in the world played at the Hollyburn Club, an absolutely stunning venue.  There are also interviews with Loni who organises the drivers in Vancouver with further insights when David chats with Mark Blundell an experienced driver for the Australian Open. The final part of the podcast is an chat with Enrico Piperno an ex-player, Davis Cup Captain, TV pundit and current Federation Cup Captain for India. He is also a philanthropist helping young under privileged Indian players. I’ve known Enrico since we competed in the early eighties and nothing says it better than this quote from Jessie Owens:

“Friendships born on the field of athletic strife are the real gold of competition. Awards become corroded, friends gather no dust”
