Tennis Courts

The three tennis courts and Pavilion at Government House were built in the late 1880s at the instigation of Governor Sir Robert Hamilton and Lady Hamilton.

Over the years the tennis courts have been regularly used by Governors and their families and visitors.

Comprising two grass courts and one en-tout-cas court, the courts are maintained by a professional greenkeeper and can be booked for recreational tennis on weekends during daylight saving months.
