The ITF has published the UNIQLO Wheelchair Tennis Tour Calendar for the first four months of 2018, from January through to April.

The updated calendar includes dates and tournament gradings for the events taking place up until the end of April.

The first four months of the 2018 UNIQLO Wheelchair Tennis Tour feature the Australian Open Grand Slam and the Cajun Classic, which has been awarded Super Series status for the first time.

The inaugural Georgia Open, which has ITF 1 status, takes place in USA the week before the Cajun Classic. 

In 2014 UNIQLO signed a three-year sponsorship agreement for the ITF’s major wheelchair tennis properties. The agreement saw UNIQLO become the title sponsor of the ITF Wheelchair Tennis Tour and Wheelchair Doubles Masters, as well as an international sponsor of the NEC Wheelchair Tennis Masters.

In 2017 UNIQLO extended its sponsorship agreement with the ITF and also became an official partner of the BNP Paribas World Team Cup and title sponsor of the Wheelchair Tennis Rankings.
