The Davis Cup tennis trophy will be visiting Leeds next week after Great Britain triumphed for the first time in 79 years.

As part of the Davis Cup Trophy Tour, it will be at Sheffield’s Ponds Forge International Sports Centre on April 18, and the John Charles Centre in Beeston on April 19.

It will also be a part of the international tennis tournament, the Aegon Ilkley Trophy, on June 16 and 17.

Earlier this month, Kyle Edmund, who lives in Beverley, East Yorkshire, brought the famous trophy to David Lloyd in Hull, giving tennis fans, players, and coaches a chance to be pictured with it.

He said: “Winning was an incredible moment personally and also for all involved and I’m eager to help ensure a lasting legacy following this historic achievement.

“Seeing everyone’s reaction when they saw the Davis Cup and sharing a bit of that passion we had on court, will hopefully encourage others to get involved and choose tennis as part of their everyday lives”.
