The cinch Championships is one of the longest-running tennis tournaments on the ATP World Tour. With more than a century of history and a roll of honour that features the names Rod Laver, John McEnroe, Boris Becker, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Carlos Alcaraz, it is the jewel in the crown of the grass court season in the lead-up to Wimbledon.

The Queen’s Club

The Queen’s Club is named after Queen Victoria, its first patron, and is regarded as one of the premier Lawn Tennis and Racquets clubs in the world.

The club opened for business in 1887 after the conversion of an 11-acre site that previously housed market gardens and a cricket pitch.

It is now associated primarily with tennis and other racquet sports, but it was also London’s first great multi-sport venue, hosting annual Oxford v Cambridge challenges at rugby, football and athletics.

In 1895, 20,000 people came to The Queen’s Club to see England play a football international against Wales. It was also one of the main venues for the London Olympics in 1908.

The Queen’s Club Championships has been staged at The Queen’s Club since 1890. The tournament was initially held at Stamford Bridge, home of Chelsea football club, between 1884 and 1889 before moving to The Queen’s Club in 1890.

Since 1979, John McEnroe, Jimmy Connors, Boris Becker, Pete Sampras, Lleyton Hewitt, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray (twice) and Carlos Alcaraz have all won both The Queen’s Club Championships and The Championships, Wimbledon in the same year.
