Queen’s Club Championships 2024 Preview: When is it, who is playing and what is the prize money?


The grass court season is in full swing, with the Queen’s Club Championships a signpost of things taking it to another gear ahead of Wimbledon.

And we, at Tennishead, have everything you need to know about the ATP 500 tournament:

When are the Queen’s Club Championships 2024?

The main draw of the iconic tournament at Queen’s will get underway on Monday 17th June, with both the singles and doubles finals taking place on Sunday 23rd June, and play on most days is set to begin at 12pm BST.

Qualifying will take place over the coming weekend (Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th June).

Where are the Queen’s Club Championships held?

The 2024 edition of the ATP tournament will be held at the prestigious Queen’s Club in West Kensington, London, once again and has done since 1890.

Queen’s is renowned across the tennis globe as one of the most iconic venues, with the tournament being named the ATP 500 event of the year in both 2022 and 2023.

Its complex holds 28 grass courts on the venue, headlined by Centre Court that can seat a total of 8,651 spectators.

Who is playing at the Queen’s Club Championships 2024?

The men’s singles draw features 32 players, with defending champion Carlos Alcaraz as the top seed.

It will be Alcaraz’s first tournament since winning Roland Garros, with the Spaniard hoping to recreate the success at Queen’s that led him onto winning Wimbledon last year.

Other top seeds in the singles field include 2023 runner-up Alex de Minaur, 2014 champion Grigor Dimitrov and American No.1 Taylor Fritz.

The only other former champion in the field is record five-time winner Andy Murray, who received a wildcard for the tournament.

Murray has been very open about the fact that this is likely to be his last year on tour, with it potentially being the final time that the Brit graces the courts of the iconic Queen’s Club.

Both of the other wildcards were also awarded to Brits in Dan Evans and Billy Harris, who will join compatriots Murray, Jack Draper and Cameron Norrie.
