The Aegon tournament returns the Men to Nottingham this June and features David Ferrer and Jo Wilfred Tsonga.

The Ladies played first in Birmingham and the new Elena Baltacha Trophy was presented for the new competition in her honour, which is an addition to the Women's tour. The Silver Tennis Collection had the honour to be given the commission for the prestigious trophy.

Our advert appeared in the centre page in the double programme for both tournaments. The opposite page features last year's Doubles winners at Eastbourne, holding the trophies supplied by The Silver Tennis Collection.

Congratulations to the Swiss Davis Cup Team

For the first time in the history of the Davis Cup, Switzerland won the Trophy in the largest ever attended tennis tournament. In Lille last weekend the French team was defeated by Switzerland and Roger Federer achieved one of the two remaining goals in his illustrious career.  All that eludes him now is Olympic Gold.  Playing and winning in Brazil 2016 would complete every title available in world tennis for Federer, probably the best player of all time.

Murray Defends his title at the Aegon Tennis Championships 2014

Less than a month to go before Andy Murray will be back in Britain to defend his Queen's Club title. After the success he had in London last year we are hoping for another fantastic tournament and of course another win. 

The Silver Tennis Collection is available at the Queen's Club throughout the year in the Pro Shop so if you are attending the Championships, make sure you visit us for that special gift to remember your day.

“To win the title for the third time last year and then to go on to winWimbledon was really special, and it highlights the importance of Queen's,” said Murray. “The grass courts there are as good as any in the world and it's a great event. It's also a tournament with a lot of history, both personally for me and for the game as a whole. It's where I won my first professional match and my first title in Britain, and when you look at the names on the trophy, including my coach Ivan Lendl, it shows how big a tournament it is to win. I'd love to do it again.

Sir Max Hastings, Queen's Club and the Great War Tennis Champions

The famous journalist and historian was the guest of honour at a dinner held at the Queen's Club. London, to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the start of the Great War. 

 

Over 100 guests including myself, and other historians, were present.  Hastings gave a very detailed and fascinating lecture of the background and why the Great War broke out.

 

Queen's Club had two very distinguished tennis players who were both killed in the War.  The more famous being Anthony Wilding, a New Zealander but educated at Cambridge, who was a four time Wimbledon champion and also a Queen's champion.  He was killed in 1915 serving as a Captain in the Royal Marines. 

 

The lesser known casualty was Kenneth Powell who was not only a Queen's Club champion in 1908 but also an Olympic hurdler.  He participated in the Olympics in London in 1908, Stockholm in 1912 and he was also Wilding's tennis partner at Cambridge.  His photograph had been hanging in Queen's Club for many years until I recognised the picture and was able to inform members about this forgotten great sportsman.  He was also killed in action in 1915 serving as a private soldier in the Honourable Artillery Company.

 

It is also an interesting fact that Sir Edward Grey, 1st Viscount Grey of Fallodon, who served as Britain's foreign secretary during the Great War, was also a champion Real Tennis player and won the Amateur Championship at Queen's Club five times.  He is best remembered for his remark at the outbreak of war "The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our time",
