With Britain and Poland sharing hosting duties, the Europe/Africa Group 1 Tie will be staged at Bath University from Wednesday 6th to Saturday 9th February.

Clare Balding will host BT Sport’s live coverage of the Great Britain matches, two singles and one doubles, each day of the group stages, with the play off for the overall winner on the final day.

Clare will be joined for analysis and commentary by current British player Laura Robson and Jo Durie, who represented Great Britain in the last Fed Cup Tie to be held in the UK.

The annual women’s tennis tournament involves over 100 nations around the globe. 

Great Britain are one of 16 teams in a Europe-Africa qualifier and the winners from the tie in Bath will earn a World Group II play-off spot in April. 

Anne Keothavong’s team will be hoping to win their group to make it through to the next stage for the 5th time in eight years and earn promotion into the World Group.

Simon Green, head of BT Sport said: “The Fed Cup always generates fantastic support and atmosphere and we’re looking forward to bringing all of the GB action to viewers at home. 

“We have put together our own top team packed full of knowledge and experience who will bring great insight and analysis along with all the excitement and atmosphere to our customers live from Bath in February.”

Scott Lloyd, LTA Chief Executive said: “We are excited to partner with BT Sport in bringing the Fed Cup closer to fans for the first time in more than a quarter of a century.

“BT Sport are already home of WTA and seems only fitting they should follow our Fed Cup journey as we aim to get back into the world group.
