.

The world cup was founded in 1985 due to increasing foreign

participation in the US Open Wheelchair Tennis Championship. It

all started as a friendly tournament on the weekend of the US

Open. In 1991, the US Open Wheelchair Tennis Championship and

the World Team Cup had grown beyond expectations and the time

was right to create a specific event.

In 1992 the World Team Cup was held for the first time, outside the

United States. The event has now been staged in 16 different

countries and it is a stand- alone tournament with more than 300

participants and about 150 additional guests.

BNP Paribas became the main sponsor for the event in 2012 after

15 years of sponsorship by Invacare.

COURSE OF THE EVENT

The event will be held in the beautiful city of Alghero at two

separate locations.

The first event will be held on April 28 th 2017 at Hotel Baia di

Conte which is on the beach and in front of the coast of Capo

Caccia. It will host players, their teams and staff on 11 courts and

various facilities available for the event.

The second event will be held at the Tennis Club Alghero that

already hosts the International Wheelchair Tennis Tournament

every year. The quarter finals, semi-finals, and finals of all the

different categories will be played there.

The event will officially open on the 1 st of May which is a National

holiday. Our association has organized an opening concert in the

port of Alghero with some of the best local musicians, celebrities,

and public officials. The participating teams and the athletes will

be presented at this event.

The matches officially start on Monday 1 st May 2017 and will finish

with the finals on Sunday 7 th May 2017.
