5. St. George Cricket Club (1893)

The U.S. Open occurred in Chicago once.

For just one year in 1893, the St. George Cricket Club in Chicago hosted the men’s doubles event, while the men’s singles event was held in Newport. Played between July 25 and 29, the 13th U.S. National Championships was won by Clarence Hobart and Fred Hovey against Oliver Campbell and Bob Huntington.

Few historical records mention much about the tournament at the St. George Cricket Club, though some records show there were hundreds in attendance watching some of the country’s best men’s double players.
