The 12 teams will be divided into four round-round groups, with the winners of each group advancing to the semi-finals.

ITF President David Haggerty said Britain’s Lawn Tennis Association “presented a very impressive bid as part of a competitive hosting process.”

“They have successfully hosted Davis Cup ties in Glasgow,” Haggerty said, “and we look forward to having the women’s World Cup of Tennis take place in front of passionate tennis fans.”

It will be the fourth time the largest annual women’s international team competition has been staged in Britain.

The Queen’s Club in London hosted the inaugural event in 1963 when the competition was launched as the Federation Cup and Billie Jean King was part of the winning US team.

The competition was also staged at Eastbourne in 1977 and Nottingham in 1991.
