The 1966 Davis Cup was the 55th edition of the most important tournament between national teams in men's tennis. For the first time, the Europe Zone was effectively split into two zones, and the winner of each would earn a berth in the Inter-Zonal Zone. 46 teams would enter the competition, 32 in the Europe Zone, 8 in the Eastern Zone, and 6 in the Americas Zone.

The United States defeated Mexico in the Americas Zone final, India defeated Japan in the Eastern Zone final, and Brazil and West Germany won the Europe Zones. In the Inter-Zonal Zone, India defeated West Germany, Brazil defeated the USA, and then India defeated Brazil in the final. India then fell to defending champions Australia in the Challenge Round which was the 1966 Davis Cup finals. The final was played at Kooyong Stadium in Melbourne, Australia on 26-28 December.
