Great Britain’s Billie Jean King Cup qualifier against France will be played in Coventry from 14-15 April.

The indoor match at the Coventry Building Society Arena will decide who reaches November’s Finals tournament.

Last year Anne Keothavong’s team lost to Australia in the semi-finals in Glasgow.

Former US Open champion and British number one Emma Raducanu was absent for that match due to injury and has also had a disrupted start to 2023.

The 20-year-old has played only four matches this season having turned her ankle in Auckland, and then taken time out to train after her second-round exit at the Australian Open.

She withdrew from this week’s WTA tournament in Austin, Texas, because of tonsillitis.

Switzerland are the defending champions in the women’s team competition – which was formerly the Fed Cup – and both they and Australia have qualified automatically for this year’s Finals.

They will be joined by the winners of the nine qualifiers and the host nation, although a venue for the final has not yet been confirmed.
