The Davis Cup by BNP Paribas officially arrives at Pensford Tennis Club, Kew on Wednesday 1st June 2016 (6.30-9.30pm) as part of a national Trophy Tour of Great Britain launched by the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) in April this year.
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 LTA wanted 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.
The events are free for all to attend and give people a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see and be pictured with the impressive Davis Cup Trophy up close and personal. The event at Pensford Tennis Club, Kew will include a barbeque and open evening for members of the public to come to see the Davis Cup Trophy and to play tennis with the Club’s coaches.
