2005 Potter Cup

May 26 - 30, 2005
Barcelona, Spain
Real Club de Polo
The Potter Cup, a multi-National men's 45's team competition (five singles and two doubles) commenced in 1972. The event is hosted by the IC of Spain and supported by the CATALAN Tennis Federation. Over the years, the event has grown in stature, and is now recognized by the ITF, which awards point toward World ITF 45's rankings for victories at the event. The Potter Cup has been held at the Real Club de Polo in Barcelona who opens its Club to players and supporters. The tournament is run to pro circuit standards with chair umpires for every match, ball kids, and lavish dinner parties. The Potter Cup has become one of the great veterans tennis events in the world.

In 2004, the U.S. IC veteran squad of Egan Adams, Jeff Davis, Danny Waldman, John Peckskamp, Geoff Martinez, Mark Myers, and Playing Captain Jeff Winkler, journeyed to the red clay of distant Spain and stung the Europeans with a sweep of Italy in the semi-finals and a stunning 4-3 victory over Spain in the finals.

In XXXIII Potter Cup, our defending championship team returned intact to Barcelona to defend the title, with the exception of Jeff Davis, who had suffered a knee injury shortly before the competition.

The Potter Cup committee seeded the USA number 1 and we drew Great Britain in the quarter-finals. Other quarter-final matches included co-number 3 Italy against Ireland, co-number 3 France against Belgium, and number 2 Spain against Germany.
