The United States Tennis Association National Campus in Orlando, Florida, will host the BNP Paribas World Team Cup Americas Qualifications for the first time at the end of January.

The first of four qualification events for the ITF's flagship wheelchair tennis team event takes place at the 100-court facility, which officially opened in early 2017, from 30 January to 2 February 2018.

The winners of the men's and women's events at each of the four regional competitions will earn qualification for their respective events at the 2018 BNP World Team Cup, which is due to take place in Apeldoorn, Netherlands, from 28 May to 3 June 2018, hosted by the KNLTB.

Apeldoorn will become the fourth Dutch city to host the BNP Paribas World Team Cup, which was previously staged in Roermond in 1995, Groningen in 2005 and Alphen in 2014. Men's, women's and quad competitions, as well as a junior event supported by the Cruyff Foundation, will be contested in Apeldoorn.
