The History of Queen’s Club
The Queen’s Club has a long and illustrious history. The Club was established all the way back on 19th August 1886 by Evan Charteris, becoming one of the very first multi-purpose sports complexes in the world and it has only thrived in the intervening years.
The club was named after the then-British Monarch, Queen Victoria who was also its first patron. The lawn tennis courts at the Queen’s Club are amongst the oldest in the country with the first courts opening on 19th May 1887 with the first sporting event being held there a few months later in July 1887 between Oxford and Cambridge.
From its opening, a plethora of sports was played at the club. This included: real tennis, the Eton Fives, rackets, lawn tennis, football, rugby and also athletics. Cricket was also played there as well.
Perhaps the most significant tennis tournament hosted at The Queen’s Club is the Queen’s Club Championships (known as the Cinch Championships for sponsorship reasons). The tournament was originally known officially as the ‘London Athletic Club Open Tournament’, first established in 1881 and originally hosted at Stamford Bridge.
By 1885, the Championships were hosted at the London Athletic Club, before finally finding its current home at The Queen’s Club in 1890. The first winner of the Championships after it moved to the club was Harry S. Barlow, who went on to win it again the following year. All winners were British until American golfer Holcombe Ward won the Queen’s Club Championships in 1905.
The most successful tennis player of all time in the history of the Queen’s Club Championships is Great Britain’s Andy Murray, who won the tournament five times between 2009 and 2016.
The most recent winner is Italy’s Matteo Berrettini, who beat Serbia’s Filip Krajinovic in the 2022 final. This was Berrettini’s second successive win in the Queen’s Club Championships, having won it the year prior in 2021.
