2003 Fed Cup Europe/Africa Zone

The Europe/Africa Zone was one of three zones of regional competition in the 2003 Fed Cup.

Group IEdit

The seventeen teams were divided into three pools of four teams and one pool of five. The top teams of each pool played-off against the second-placed teams to decide which four nations progress to World Group Play-offs. The four nations coming last in the pools were relegated to Group II for 2004.
