Chandigarh to host Davis Cup tie

Chandigarh will witness international tennis action this month with the Davis Cup tie between India and New Zealand being held at the Chandigarh Lawn Tennis Association (CLTA) grounds here on September 14-16.

The city is hosting a Davis Cup tie after a gap of 19 years. The CLTA has started the sale of tickets for the tennis stadium and is even expecting fans of the New Zealand team to arrive at the Union Territory. The tie here, comprising five matches, will be the Asia-Oceania second round play-offs between both countries.

Chandigarh last hosted the Davis Cup here in 1993 when India had lost to Australia.
