The Boodles Tennis Challenge (former Boodle and Dunthorne Champions Challenge) is an international five-day tennis exhibition held at Stoke Park in Buckinghamshire, England. In coordination with Boodles, a luxury jeweler, it was initially founded by veteran sports agent Patricio Apey as an event to help players hone their grass court skills in the lead-up to Wimbledon. It is played in a similar style to the AAMI Classic giving the players at least three matches each and allowing non competition players to appear in one match per a day. Over recent years Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, Tim Henman, Marat Safin, James Blake, Andy Roddick, Fernando González, David Nalbandian, Novak Djokovic, Fernando Verdasco, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Andy Murray have all appeared. Since its inception, The Boodles has turned into a lifestyle event featuring British luxury brands such as Boodles, Veuve Clicquot and H.R. Owen.

Often described as an elegant English summer party around world class tennis,[citation needed] attendances are strictly limited to 1900 people per day to ensure every guest has a view of both the tennis and the jewellery on display.
