Further details about the Davis Cup Trophy Tour's arrival in Norwich have been confirmed.

The imposing trophy, won by Great Britain last November for the first time in 79 years, will be at the UEA Sportspark between 10am and 5pm on Friday, May 20.

The trophy will be on display in the Sportspark foyer, where there will be opportunities for photographs.

Mini tennis taster sessions will also be on offer throughout the day, with skills sessions delivered by the Davis Cup legacy coaching team.

The free events have been organised by the Lawn Tennis Association, which has already seen 30,000 children sign up for free tennis sessions across the country, with hundreds of youngsters in Norfolk taking part in a six-week coaching programme.
