The Seabright Lawn Tennis and Cricket Club is one of the oldest active tennis clubs and the oldest grass tennis club in the United States, located in Rumson, Monmouth County, New Jersey, United States. It was organized in 1877 and incorporated in 1886. The Seabright Invitational Tournament was a major tournament from 1884 through 1950.[2][3][4] It was ended not because of funding, but because the members grew tired of the fuss.[5]
