We are delighted to show you the Davis Cup Virtual Tour which includes close up plaque images and even audio of the history of each year.
The Davis Cup trophy was donated by the competition’s founder Dwight Davis in 1900 as the prize for an international challenge match between USA and British Isles. Davis’s international challenge is now the largest annual international team competition in sport and the Davis Cup trophy has grown along with the competition that bears its name.
Made by Shreve, Crump and Low of Boston, Massachusetts, the Davis Cup trophy was originally a lone sterling silver punchbowl. The three plinths have since been added to accommodate the engraved plaques. The trophy is currently 110cm high, 107cm in diameter at its widest point, and weighs 105kg.
ITF President Francesco Ricci Bitti said: “The Davis Cup is one of the most iconic trophies in world sport. The Virtual Tour displays its magnitude in a way that has never been seen before, giving fans the opportunity to explore the detailed architecture and share the wonderful history of Davis Cup.”
