Rackets Building at Queen's Re-Opens

09 Mar 2012

The major renovation and restructuring of the Rackets building at The Queen's Club has now been completed. Members and guests were invited to the re-opening, Thursday 8th March, by the acting Chairman, Toby Foxcroft. The spectator galleries have been modernised allowing for much larger numbers to watch Rackets in comfort, with spectacular and unrestricted views. All present were treated to exhibition matches introduced by T&RA Chairman, William Maltby, with the resurgent Guy Smith-Bingham taking on US Doubles champion, Nick James, at singles; and a world class field of James Coyne, Ben Snell, Ben Bomford and Alex Titchener-Barrett engaged in the doubles. The grand re-development included a spectacular terrace room and library opening up over the lawn tennis centre court, together with a foyer  leading to the Rackets courts with displays of old Rackets Masters, Honour Boards and a resplendent trophy cabinet. This outstanding investment by Queen's echoes the Club's commitment to the sport as 'the Home of Rackets' and unquestionably the Rackets community is extremely grateful for the efforts of all those involved over the years to bring this dream into reality.
