Bideford club is the only one in Devon to welcome the tennis equivalent of the World Cup this weekend.

The Davis Cup will be making an appearance at a Bideford Tennis Club this weekend.

Atlantic Racquet Centre has been chosen by the Lawn Tennis Association to have the trophy on Sunday (September 4) as part of a nationwide tour.

The Bideford club is the only one in Devon to welcome the tennis equivalent of the World Cup.

There will be a special fun day at the club at Caddsdown with tennis activities from 10am.

The Davis Cup will be unveiled at 12.30pm.

In addition, there will be live music, refreshments and a guest appearance from middleweight boxer and British title contender Tommy Langord.

Head coach Tom Vinall said: "It's an incredible honour for Atlantic Racquet Centre to be chosen to host the Davis Cup, but more importantly it's a fantastic opportunity for us to inspire a whole generation of tennis players in North Devon.

"This new facility, with an inspiring young coaching team, is ready and waiting for them - and we hope that having the chance to see, and have a photo taken with the tennis World Cup will encourage them to give tennis a try."

Councillor John Himan, of Torridge District Council, added: "As the only place in the whole of Devon to be granted a spot on the Trophy Tour I hope that this will draw many crowds to attend this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, which promises to be a great day out for all ages.

"I am proud that Torridge Council are able to support the club in a small way by making our conference facilities available for the event."

Britain clinched the Davis Cup back in November, when they beat Belgium 3-1 in the final in Ghent.
