Davis Cup in Vancouver 2012

Comments 104 by Rebecca Bollwitt

It’s been twenty years but the Davis Cup tournament is returning to Vancouver next weekend as Canada takes on France.

Davis Cup VancouverLocation Thunderbird Sports Centre
Dates February 10 to February 12, 2012
Times 2:00pm daily
Tickets Sold out within 30 minutes, sorry!

Canada is ranked 14th heading into the tournament against 4th-ranked France. Those fortunate enough to have snagged tickets are encouraged to bust out their red and white Canada gear — toques, mittens, scarves, jackets, and more.

Fans are encouraged to cheer loudly and show support for members of the home team including Milos Raonic, Vancouver’s own Vasek Pospisil and Doubles Champion Daniel Nestor.

If you don’t have tickets, you can watch with other fans at Cactus Club locations around the Lower Mainland.

You can also win your way in to Saturday’s event, Men’s Doubles, as Tennis Canada has kindly offered up a pair of tickets to one lucky Miss604 reader. Here’s how you can enter to win:

    This is potentially the greatest, most exciting tennis event to take place in Vancouver, in addition to the annual Van Open! We are so fortunate to have Davis Cup! I’m confident their will be more events like this to come, do doubt this will be a success!

    I met Bjorn Borg when he was in Vancouver many years ago to open what was to have been the Bjorn Borg Whistler Resort. He played a short demonstration at the Vancouver Lawn Tennis Club. I don’t know what happened to the Resort – it never opened, but I still have the publicity sweater they gave away with his name on it.
