    Fed Cup Qualifiers February 7/8 - Support thread - Who is going etc.

    So, Slovakia for my birthday next year sounds good... Looks like all of their recent ties have been in Bratislava so tying in a trip to Vienna sounds possible, or even flying into there. Only an hour away on the train.

    direct flight from Manchester to Bratislava, outward Thursday, return late Sunday. Currently less than 50 return, if you only take a small bag on board. ryanair also fly from LBA, Stanstead and Birmingham although flight availability does vary.

    It would cost me more to get to Manchester though... Will look at flights from Scotland tonight.

    My sister informs me that beer is 1 euro per litre! Although post Brexit that'll probably be 25...

    Most do a supporter thread in Coaches Corner.

    According to the Government's website, everyone's passport must be valid for six months or more before you travel to Slovakia.

    No sure about this. Like the idea, but also want to go to Greenland next year.

    As much as I would like to go, I will probably have to give it a miss

    I was thinking of waiting to see what happens to our team for next year's Davis Cup and then decide what to do. If we had to go through the qualifying round and got a home tie (Birmingham or Glasgow?!!), then I would probably go to that one as I know the pound and the Euro aren't very good at the moment and nobody knows what will happen come the 31st October. Also, you never know as Andy might decide to turn up and play.
