The first tennis courts were built beside the Principal’s residence. The newer courts beside Honour Avenue were built in the 1950s. All of these courts were of “ant bed” construction- a gritty compacted sandy-coloured dirt. The lines were laid out weekly, in chalk. For some time, there were up to 6 courts and the school teams were very successful in district, regional and state competitions. When the Principal’s residence was removed to make way for the Dental Clinic, the tennis courts were also removed. Over the years the courts were changed from ant-bed to bitumen to a modern-day tennis surface.
