trophy

The Davis Cup by BNP Paribas Trophy will visit Cheltenham and Gloucester this weekend as part of its tour of Great Britain and everyone is invited along.

Following Great Britain’s historic win against Belgium in the 2015 Davis Cup final, when Team GB hoisted the trophy for the first time in 79 years, the Lawn Tennis Association has decided to celebrate this momentous occasion by delivering the Davis Cup Trophy Tour across the country to thank the tennis community including players, coaches, venues and volunteers who supported the team on its incredible journey. It also wanted to inspire a new generation to pick up a racket and get involved in tennis.

When it arrives at Cheltenham’s Montpellier Park, young tennis players will feel inspired to pick up a racket and have a go at free tennis sessions with their families with the coaching team from East Glos Club. There will also be a BBQ hosted by In the Park, arts and crafts and Olympic sports to try thanks to The Cheltenham Trust play rangers.  The event, which runs from 10am until 1pm, has been designed to be fully accessible.

James Deem of the Lawn Tennis Association said: “It is fantastic to have the Davis Cup Trophy Tour come to Gloucester and Cheltenham, we would love to see as many people come as possible come down and see the trophy and have their photo taken, alongside it and the other events happening.”
