Tennis from Queens remains on BBC until 2024

The BBC has confirmed it has retained the rights to show Tennis from Queen’s for another seven years.

This announcement comes just months after the BBC had also kept Wimbledon coverage until 2024.

The BBC will continue to broadcast the Aegon Championships at The Queen’s Club until 2024 as part of a new deal that will see the tournament remain free-to-air. The BBC has covered Queens Tennis since 1979.

Announcing the deal, Barbara Slater, Director of BBC Sport, said:
“The Aegon Championships at The Queen’s Club is one of the most cherished events in the tennis calendar and it’s great that the BBC will continue to bring it to audiences across all platforms until 2024. With a British tennis player as the current World No. 1 there’s no better time for us to reinforce our commitment to the sport.”

3.7 million people watched Andy Murray defeat Milos Raonic in the Queen’s final in 2016.
