London is widely considered the home of tennis, and hosts the most prestigious tournaments in the sporting calendar.
Queen’s (the Aegon Championships) 13th – 19th June
Established in 1886, The Queen’s Club was the first multi-purpose sports complex ever to be built, anywhere in the world. It was named after Queen Victoria, its first patron, and is widely renowned as one of the premier Lawn Tennis and Racquets clubs in the world. Queen’s (the Aegon Championships) is now one of the most prestigious grass court tournaments, drawing such great interest that it is 2nd only to Wimbledon in numbers of spectators.
Modern day hospitality means you can watch the Centre Court action in style with a range of hospitality options, from informal dining in Love Fifteen to the prestigious formality of The President’s Room, inside the Clubhouse.
In its inaugural year of 2002, the Boodle and Dunthorne Champions Challenge (now The Boodles Challenge) quickly established itself as one of the ‘must attend’ summer social gatherings, giving guests the opportunity to mingle at close quarters with the world’s tennis elite.
Elegant, tranquil and immaculately kept, the grounds of Stoke Park provide the perfect setting for entertaining friends, colleagues and business associates. The uniquely intimate and relaxed country club, hotel and spa set in 300 acres of fine parkland creates an atmosphere that is relished by spectators and players alike. The facilities are unsurpassed: the grass courts are Wimbledon specification, the hotel is five star, the championship golf course was founded in 1908, the spa is award winning and the fine dining restaurant, Humphry’s, has 3 AA rosettes.
The Championships, Wimbledon is the oldest tennis tournament in the world and is widely considered the most prestigious. It is the oldest of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments and the only one still played on grass courts. It has been held at the All England Club in the London suburb of Wimbledon since 1877.
There are a number of hospitality areas such as private marquees located in the exclusive marquee village in the Grounds of the All England Club, The Gatsby Club, Centre Court Skyview Suites, The Players Table and Speakeasy Private Venue, meaning you will always be able to find refreshments (and the odd punnet of strawberries and cream).
