Venue Information

The Memorial Drive Tennis club was established in 1914, under the name South Australian Lawn Tennis Club. About six acres of land were leased to the club and the courts were opened in October 1921 by the Governor of South Australia, Sir Archibald Weigall.

Gerald Patterson won the first ever South Australian Men's Singles Championship at the venue in 1922, the same year in which he also won Wimbledon for the second time. The following year, a clubhouse and grandstand were erected at Memorial Drive, the northern grandstand being the former stand from Adelaide Oval, which was dismantled and then reassembled. In 1938 a large permanent grandstand was erected on the northern side of the courts.
