  • Men’s: positions 1-10
  • Women’s: positions 1-8
  • Quad: positions 1-6
  • Juniors: positions 1-4

Where is the World Team Cup being held?

The 2024 World Team Cup will take place at the Megasaray Tennis Academy in Antalya, Turkey, a facility that has 43 tennis courts, 26 of which are clay courts. This year’s World Team Cup will be the first since 2018 to be held on clay.

This will be the fourth time since 2010 that Antalya has played host to the World Team Cup finals, with the 2010, 2013 and 2015 events also held on clay at a facility an hour away from this year’s host club.

Which players have been selected for the Lexus GB World Team Cup Team for 2024?

This year, Great Britain is one of four nations, along with Brazil, Japan and South Africa, to have teams competing for all four championship titles after the Lexus GB World Team Cup Quad Team’s victory at the World Team Cup European Qualification in March.    

The Brits will once again boast one of the strongest men’s teams in the competition and will aim for a fourth World Team Cup title after winning their third title in Portugal in 2023. Current singles and doubles world No.1 Alfie Hewett heads up the squad alongside Gordon Reid. Between them Hewett and Reid have a total of 33 Grand Slam doubles titles. Former and current junior US Open title winners, Ben Bartram and Dahnon Ward join Hewett and Reid in a four-man team, with Bartram having also joined Hewett and Reid in last year’s title-winning team.
