About ASCoT Club

ASCoT ("All Sports Country Team") is a unique Gentlemen's club created in Hamburg in 1992, where its members, their spouses and partners meet, communicate and become friends by actively participating in exclusive sporting and social events. From tennis to fencing, golf to polo and yachting to hunting or simply polyathlon.

ASCoT has always looked for support and recognition at the highest levels of society as it aims to respect tradition and local customs to spread among all the history and hospitality of the countries of their new hosts and members. Its international organisation is the mirror of its multilingual and openminded philosophy, as well as of its willpower of respecting secular established traditions.

This long-standing and spectacular tennis event has formed the cornerstone of ASCoT Club who has since been expanding to include other sports such as golf and fencing.

The first four editions of this 'friendly' Davis Cup were held from 1992 to 1995 on the magnificent site of the private and famous boarding school of Louisenlund on the shores of the Baltic Sea, courtesy of HH Prince Christoph zu Schleswig-Holstein. ASCoT culture, spirit and vision has been carried over the years with great energy by its current chairman and founder, Count Charles du Bediesse.
