Tennis Queens Club Championships

QUEEN'S CLUB CHAMPIONSHIPS

The Queen’s Club Championships, or simply called Queen’s Club, is an annual tennis tournament for male players held on grass courts at the Queen’s Club in West Kensington, London. The event is one of the more prestigious tournaments on the ATP World Tour 500 series and is generally a lead up to Wimbledon. Dating back to 1890, it is one of the oldest tournaments held today, offering over $1 million in prize money.

Originally known as the London Grass Court Championships, the event traces all the way back to 1884, when an unknown tennis tournament was held at the London Athletic Club at Stamford Bridge, Fulham. The first official tournament took place at its current location in 1890 and has since been a regular fixture on the tennis calendar, apart from the years it was suspended during the two World Wars. It originally had both men’s and women’s singles, but in 1973, the women’s event was dropped. It gained so much in stature that between 1970 and 1989, it was part of the Grand Prix tennis circuit.

Since its inception, the tournament has been dominated by many tennis greats. In the sixties, Roy Emerson took the title on four occasions. In the late seventies/early eighties, John McEnroe was the man to beat, winning the tournament four times between 1979 and 1984. In recent times American Andy Roddick and our own Lleyton Hewitt have ruled at Queen’s, also taking the title on four occasions each.
