The 1932 International Lawn Tennis Challenge was the 27th edition of what is now known as the Davis Cup. 22 teams would enter the Europe Zone; while 8 would enter the Americas Zone, 5 in North America and 3 in South America.

The United States defeated Brazil in the American Zone, after Brazil received two walkovers in the South America Zone. The USA then defeated Germany in the Inter-Zonal play-off. France defeated the Americans in the Challenge Round, giving them their sixth straight title. The final was played at Stade Roland Garros in Paris, France on 29-31 July.[1][2][3]
