The Czech Republic Fed Cup team is the representative national team of the Czech Republic in Fed Cup competition. The Czech Republic team in its current incarnation only began competing in 1993. It is seen as the primary successor to the Czechoslovakian team, and not Slovakia, even though the Czechoslovakian team included both Czech and Slovak players.

Czechoslovakia won the Fed Cup five times between 1975 and 1988, but the victory in 2011 was the team's first win as the Czech Republic,[1] They won again in 2012, for the second consecutive year.

Martina Navrátilová, one of the Czechoslovakian teams greatest players, helped guide the team to victory in 1975. In 1981 she became a US citizen and in later tournaments, notably the 1986 Fed Cup final, she played for the United States against her former nation.
