The Queen's Club Pro tennis tournament was held in 1927 and 1928. It went by the name of the Professional Championship of the World in 1928 gaining the tournament great notability. The tournament was held in October on clay courts, at the Queen's Club and was hoped that it would become a permanent structure like the amateur championships (grand slams) and be considered one of the big pro events like the US Pro and the Bristol Cup.[1] It was discontinued and wasn't held in 1929.[2]
