The UNIQLO Wheelchair Tennis Tour consisted of more than 140 tournaments in over 40 countries, covering all parts of the world in 2015. Total prize money for the tour in 2016 is over $2million.
The Wheelchair Tennis Tour originated in 1992 with 11 international tournaments. NEC was the title sponsor of the Tour from its inception in 1992 through to the end of 2013. UNIQLO became the official title sponsor of the Tour in June 2014.
The tour is divided into multiple grades from the lowest level of Futures, of which there are the greatest number of tournaments each year, up to the four Grand Slam events.
At the end of the year, the No. 1 ranked men and women are crowned Wheelchair Tennis World Champions at the ITF World Champions Dinner, held during Roland Garros in Paris.
