The 2007 Annual General Meeting of the Centenary Tennis Club was held this past 17 November at the Olympic Museum of Lausanne.
The CTC has its headquarters established at the Olympic Museum due to the express wishes of the then President of the International Olympic Committee Mr. Juan Antonio Samaranch and is the place where Assemblies and other relevant functions are held.
It should be mentioned that the admission of four notably important clubs was approved at this recent Assembly: The Queen’s Club (London, UK), California Tennis Club (San Francisco, USA), Tennis Club Napoli (Naples, Italy) and the Winchester Tennis & Squash Club (Winchester, UK), institutions which will undoubtedly help in the expansion and recognition of the CTC. The organization of competitions in 2008 was another of the subjects which was commented upon, with the hopes of increasing the number of participating clubs.

From these lines we should like to express our sincere thanks to the personnel of the Olympic Museum for their collaboration and for the facilities provided for the staging of the program for the Assembly.

In November of 2001 the CTC, in collaboration with the RCTB-1899, organized the "Ist Forum of Tennis School Coaches" in the installations of the Spanish club. The two days of presentations were attended by more than twenty persons, many of them from the different clubs of the CTC. The seven papers that were presented were highly relevant and gave rise to lively discussion, which served to bring to light the concern of the clubs in respect to their Tennis Schools, insofar as all aspects of training and formation are concerned, as well as social, sportive, competition, etc.
