Fed Cup Europe/Africa Zone Group I at Team Bath Tennis
Some of the world’s leading tennis players will be in action at the University of Bath in February 2019 as the Sports Training Village hosts the Europe/Africa Zone Group I stage of the 2019 Fed Cup by BNP Paribas.
It is the first time that the international women’s team competition is being staged in the UK since 1993 and eight nations, including Great Britain, will be battling it out for promotion to the World Group II stages.
Joining the host nation at the Sports Training Village from February 6-9 2019 will be Croatia, Georgia, Greece, Hungary, Serbia, Slovenia and Turkey.
Matches will be played on the indoor courts, which will be transformed into an atmospheric spectator arena with the addition of stands and fan zones. The show court will have 1,800 seats and a second court will accommodate 300 spectators.
Prices per session will start from £8 for adults and £5 for U18s/students with a valid NUS card.
Transport will be provided to and from the Sports Training Village from ‘park and ride’ facilities in the city of Bath. Accommodation will also be available in Polden Court on campus for just £40 per night – more details to follow.

From touring professionals playing at Grand Slams through to enthusiastic amateurs wanting to keep fit and have fun, Team Bath’s all-encompassing tennis programme has something for everyone.
