This tournament is recognised for its importance in women’s tennis and the effort that the best players in the world make to promote their respective countries. Another peculiar feature of this event is that it is the longest running event in a year in professional tennis.
With a participation of more than 100 nations worldwide and a tournament that lasts for a whole year, it is normal that there is a Billie Jean King Cup Format, which is complex to understand. In short, there are 4 Groups categorised by levels, with Group 4 being the lowest, while Group 1 is the highest, and its members are the only ones with a chance to compete for a place in the Billie Jean King Cup finals.
The 12 Billie Jean King Cup Africa Teams will be divided into two groups, where they will play against each other. Each country will play two singles matches and one doubles match against each of their group opponents.
At the end of the group stage, the teams that finish in first place will play against each other to determine who will advance to the Billie Jean King Cup Group II. On the other hand, the teams finishing in last place in each group will play each other, and the loser of this match will be relegated to Group IV.
