History[edit]

The Netherlands competed in its first Fed Cup in 1963. Their best result was reaching the final in 1968, losing 3-0 to Australia, and 1997, losing 4-1 to France with Brenda Schultz-McCarthy winning her singles match against Mary Pierce.

In 1998, the team was relegated to the Europe/Africa Zone Group I, where they spent nearly all their time through 2013.

The Netherlands earned back-to-back promotions in 2014 and 2015 by defeating Japan and Australia respectively, thereby securing a spot in the 2016 Fed Cup World Group.
