An international tennis tournament in Yorkshire is going to form part of the Davis Cup Trophy Tour this summer.

The prestigious prize, which Great Britain won last November, will be stopping off at the Aegon Ilkley Trophy on 16 and 17 June.

Yorkshire tennis star Kyle Edmund, who was part of the victorious Aegon GB Davis Cup Team, kicked off the Davis Cup Trophy Tour in Hull, where he met tennis fans, players, and coaches.

He said: "Winning was an incredible moment personally and also for all involved and I'm eager to help ensure a lasting legacy following this historic achievement.

"Seeing everyone's reaction when they saw the Davis Cup, and sharing a bit of that passion we had on court, will hopefully encourage others to get involved and choose tennis as part of their everyday lives."

"We look forward to seeing the continued excitement as the Trophy makes its way around Yorkshire and hope that we can encourage and inspire more children and adults to take part in our great sport."
