A DISTINCT HISTORY
The CIT is one of the oldest tennis clubs in Geneva and has a unique history. It was established in 1937 by staff members of the League of Nations and the International Labour Office on the "Campagne Rigot". The land was donated by John D. Rockefeller, Jr., to be used for scientific, cultural and sports activities. In 2007, following plans to extend the Ecole Sismondi and construct the "Campus de la Paix" on the site, the CIT moved to its current location in Pregny-Chambésy. A new club was built on land leased to it by the United Nations. The club now boasts modern facilities. Find out more about our new grounds on our FACILITIES page.
