In early 1975, two clay tennis courts were opened on the grounds of Mazenod College. Money raised from various events such as the Sportman’s Dinner and Walkathon contributed to funding the construction of the courts. The clay tennis courts were removed in 1986 to make way for the O’Rourke Building which meant that Mazenod tennis teams had to play all their matches away from home. In 1990, four new tennis courts were opened at their current location at the Corner of Kernot Ave and Monash Drive, Mulgrave.
