The International Team Competition for players aged 16 & Under was launched by the ITF in 1985 as the "World Youth Cup" with NEC as the title sponsor between 1988 and 2001.
In 2002 the ITF re-branded the boys competition as part of a new partnership with BNP Paribas to "Junior Davis Cup by BNP Paribas". The girls' competition was also changed to "Junior Fed Cup by BNP Paribas" in 2005. An agreement was also signed with Wilson with effect from 2002, to become the 'Official Ball' of the Competition.
From the competition's inaugural year in 1985 when 44 nations took part in regional qualifying with the top 16 boys' and 16 girls' teams moving through to the Final in Kobe, Japan, the competition has gone from strength to strength. The number of participants has grown to around 100 nations each year.
In order to reach the Finals every nation, with the exception of the host nation, must win through regional qualifying. There are five qualification zones: Africa, North/Central America, South America, Europe and Asia/Oceania. In the larger zones there are two rounds of qualification to progress through to the Final.
The 16 boys' and girls' teams in the final are drawn into four round-robin groups before the top teams in each group progress to the semi-finals where a knock-out competition decides the champions.
Full details of the format and other details can be found on the Rules and Regulations page.
