Stella Artois at Queen's Tennis
The Stella Artois Queens Club Championship tournament will be held this year June. The Artois Championships have long been regarded as one of the top ten tennis events in the world. The tournament is held annually and is only for male tennis players. It is part of the ATP Tour International Series tennis tournament, and although it is not a grand slam event, it is always attended by many world class top players.
In recent years the Stella Artois at Queen's Tennis tournament has seen the likes of Andy Roddick, Lleyton Hewitt, Pete Sampras and Boris Becker all win the tournament. The Stella Artois Championships are always held in the run up to the Wimbledon championships. It is seen by the tennis players as an opportunity to practice for the grass season as it is usually held after the French Open as they players adapt from clay to grass.
