Nikola Antolković was born in the town of Križevci in central Croatia, but later moved with his family to Zagreb, where he subsequently studied law and became a member of the Croatian Academic Sports Club (HAŠK). In the 1920s, he enjoyed a good deal of success in lawn tennis tournaments, notably winning the men’s singles title at the inaugural edition of the International Yugoslavian Championships in 1921, and winning the same title at the same tournament again in 1924. His sister, Mira Antolković (later Mrs Würth) won the women’s singles title at the International Yugoslavian Championships in 1921, 1922, 1924 and 1926. The siblings also won the mixed doubles title together at the same tournament in 1924 and 1926.
