Description:

Engraving of racket tennis being played at the New Prince’s Club.

The Prince’s Club was a socially exclusive gentlemen’s multisports club in London, England. The original ‘Prince’s Club’ was founded in 1853 in Chelsea by George and James Prince and its main sports were rackets and real tennis. Cricket, croquet and lawn tennis were also played. After most of its ground was lost to building developments it closed in 1887. Its successor, the ‘New Prince’s Club’, located in Knightsbridge, opened in 1888 and kept its focus on rackets and real tennis, but no longer had any outdoor sports. In 1896 the Prince’s Skating Club was opened. The Prince’s Club was in operation until the 1940s.
