International Tennis Federation

The ITF controls the major international team events for all age groups and for Wheelchair Tennis, including the world’s two largest annual international team competitions in sport, Davis Cup by BNP Paribas for men and Fed Cup by BNP Paribas for women.

The ITF is involved at the highest levels of the game, including the 'the greatest show on earth', the Olympic Games, to which tennis was reintroduced as a full medal sport in 1988.

In addition, the ITF works closely with the four Grand Slams – Australian Open, Roland Garros, Wimbledon and US Open – through its presence on the Grand Slam Committee and supports each event with administrative, officiating and media services.

The four Grand Slams are all official championships of the ITF, while the Japan Open, Italian Open Championships and International Championships of Spain are also recognised championships of the ITF.
