Novak Djokovic kisses the Aegon International Eastbourne trophy

The Aegon International takes place in Devonshire Park - Eastbourne's oldest park which has hosted Lawn Tennis since the 1870s.

Past champions include Chris Evert, Virginia Wade, Lindsay Davenport, Kim Clijsters, Caroline Wozniacki and 2013 Wimbledon ladies’ singles champion Marion Bartoli - however, Martina Navratilova tops the list with 11 Aegon International Eastbourne singles titles to her name.

Devonshire Park isn’t just home to the Aegon International Eastbourne, but also hosts the Aegon Summer County Cup and was last used as a Davis Cup home venue in 2010.
