The schedule sees a line-up of tantalising matches, with Great Britain's team taking on Kazakhstan on the first evening, and the two most-successful nations in Billie Jean King Cup history - USA and Czech Republic - facing off in the last group stage tie on Friday 11 November.

Four of the first five days sees ties in the morning session begin at 10:00 GMT with ties in the evening session not beginning before 16:00 GMT. On Friday 11 November, Armistice Day, play will begin just over one hour later to accommodate the two-minute silence at 11:00 GMT.

The semi-finals will both be played on Saturday 12 November (reverting back to 10:00 and 16:00 GMT start times) with the 2022 Billie Jean King Cup final to begin at 14:00 GMT on Sunday 13 November.

All ties will feature two singles matches followed by a doubles match. Singles matches will be played as best-of-three tiebreak sets, with doubles matches played with no-ad scoring and with a match tiebreak played as the third set.

"The schedule follows a very exciting announcement for the Billie Jean King Cup, with new official title sponsor Gainbridge supporting the goal of equivalent prize money for women and men in the World Cup of Tennis. We encourage fans to purchase their tickets and show their support in the crowd too.”
