Tomorrow sees the Davis Cup Trophy Tour arrive in Suffolk, on its trip around Great Britain.

Giles Circus, Ipswich (from 10am– 5pm) is the place to be to get a glimpse and take selfies with one of the biggest and grandest trophies in world sport, or if the rain arrives the trophy will be situated in the Town Hall.

Great Britain won the trophy for the first time in 79 years last year, beating Belgium in the beautiful city of Ghent when captain Leon Smith lead the team of Andy and Jamie Murray, Kyle Edmund, Dom Inglot and James Ward to an historic victory.

Many people from Suffolk followed the team throughout the whole campaign beating USA, France and Australia and witnessed history being made in Belgium in November.

Building on the back of this success, the LTA recruited 1,000 coaches nationally to deliver a Davis Cup Legacy programme each to introduce 10 new children into tennis. This was fully embraced in Suffolk with 20 coaches being selected and the courses quickly filled up and many of these coaches have now been allocated additional courses to deliver, which long term can only benefit tennis within Suffolk clubs and the county in general.

The event in Ipswich is being organised by Suffolk LTA in conjunction with Ipswich Borough Council.

Suffolk LTA are delighted to be able to bring the Trophy to our County, a county which has in the past seen the FA Cup and Rugby World Cup in Ipswich.
