For UK based tennis enthusiasts summer means sporting excellence, hopefully matched by fine weather, and the quintessentially British strawberries and cream, who could ask for anything more? Well, you can.
Why have a standard ticket to watch Murray, Djokovic, the William’s sisters and Gordon Reid display their optimum techniques and strategic thinking when you can view the match in luxurious surroundings?
As you might expect, tickets for some days at Wimbledon are becoming rarer by the minute so if you want to take advantage of sports hospitality with clients, business contacts or team members why not choose the more intimate Aegon Tennis at Queen’s Club in London as an alternative?
It’s arguably easier to host corporate guests at the Aegon tennis championships, this year it’s taking place 19th-25th June.
It’s a practice tournament for Wimbledon so it attracts the big names and thanks to its smaller capacity you’ll be closer to the players and can chat in exquisite VIP sports hospitality areas.
To many clients, the size and informality are strong selling points with Aegon tennis hospitality packages because they don’t want their guests to be lost in a crowd or overawed by their surroundings.
Even with the announcement made in September 2016 that in 2017 there will be 2000 more seats available, taking the total capacity to 9000, the competition and venue will still be friendly and less formal than a Grand Slam.
Don’t be mistaken, Aegon tennis at the Queen’s Club is not a poor relation to Wimbledon. The state of the art facilities, refreshments and dining opportunities are exceptional and this is a competition that the now Sir Andy Murray has made his own in recent years, he’s a record breaking five-time winner holding the trophy aloft in 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2016.
Last year’s final was between Murray and Raonic and they met again a few weeks later in the Wimbledon final and were watched courtside at both by their mentors/coaches, Ivan Lendl and John McEnroe. Will there be a 2017 repeat? Would you like to be within earshot of Lendl or any other coach offering choice advice?
Sports hospitality packages, available from top level service providers including DTB Sports and Events in London, are a perfect way to show someone who adores tennis that you respect them and are pleased to invest time and money for their enjoyment. This yields loyalty and a stronger working relationship.
The Roof Garden package includes:
- An official Centre Court East Stand ticket and seat cushion.
- Private tables for 12 guests. Smaller parties are allocated on a shared basis.
- Sunken ice wells or wine buckets on tables.
- Complimentary beer and wine.

- Complimentary bar throughout the day (excludes champagne.)
- Delightful three course dining experience.
- Afternoon tea – with a twist.
- Use of the beautiful outdoor garden terrace.

Bespoke tennis packages can be arranged by professional firms so if a pre-tailored package doesn’t tempt you, build your own. Make your day at Queen’s Club magical.
