Tickets are already on sale for the upcoming Euro/Africa Zone Group 2 Davis Cup by PNP Paribas tie between South Africa and Estonia.

The club has six courts, three under lights and outstanding facilities which offer tennis, golf, squash, cricket, bowls, restaurants and conference facilities, which are all the perfect ingredients for a top class Davis Cup venue.
Richard Glover, Tennis South Africa CEO, said: βThe Irene Country Club is a spectacular venue and a great family-friendly environment in which to enjoy international tennis. This is a fresh start for our Davis Cup team and we urge tennis fans in Gauteng to come out in force to support our boys.β
South Africa and Estonia are expected to name their teams in early January 2017.
