HistoryEdit

A New Zealand team first competed in the Fed Cup in 1965. Its best results have been World Group quarter-finals in 1965 and 1971.

Due to a late withdrawal from a competition in 2011, New Zealand were banned from competing in the 2012 Fed Cup.[1]

New Zealand chose to not enter a team in the 2015 and 2016 Fed Cups because they feared their team wouldn't be competitive.[2][3]
