The Aiken Tennis Club is a 1902 private sports facility in Aiken, South Carolina. The club was incorporated in 1898 thanks to the politician and famous financier William C. Whitney?s sponsorship.

Listed in the National Register of Historic Places in November 1984, the Aiken Tennis Club is considered as the world?s most equatorial court or ?real? tennis venue. It is also one of the only two American courts located in the south of the Mason-Dixon Line.

A good number of former tennis world champions have played in the Aiken Tennis Club in the past. Some of them include Wayne Davies, Jordan Toole, Northrup Knoxe, Camden Riviere, Jimmy Bostwick, and Ruaraidh Gunn. In 2008, this was the chosen venue for the world championship challenger match by Riviere and Gunn.
