Queens club for sale

London's historic Queen's Club, home of the Stella Artois Championships, has been put up for sale.
British tennis's governing body, the Lawn Tennis Association, is selling the club on a 120-year lease.

The LTA is relocating its headquarters by early 2007 to a new state-of-the-art tennis academy in Roehampton.

Queen's will be sold on the basis that it will retain a rackets club and that the Stella Artois Championships or any future tournament remain unaffected.

"Moving to our new National Tennis Centre is an integral part of our plans for finding and developing future British tennis champions," said LTA chief executive John Crowther.

"We want to ensure that Queen's Club continues in its role as one of the most prestigious tennis and racket sports clubs in the country and to host the Stella Artois tournament each June."

The proceeds of the sale will be re-invested in the long-term development of British tennis.

Queen's has 29 outdoor courts - of which 13 are among the finest grass courts in the world, eight are shale and clay, four plexi and four artificial grass.

It also boasts 10 indoor lawn tennis courts, two real tennis courts, two rackets courts, three squash courts, a gymnasium and a physiotherapy suite.
