首次全港草地男子單打錦標賽於1911年假香港木球會舉行,由尼斯畢(H.A. Nisbet)奪標。第一位華人冠軍出現於1918年:吳仕光自當年首嘗冠軍滋味後,一舉創下六連冠的偉業。全港草地網球錦標賽一直以香港木球會作為比賽場地至1976年,其後改於紀利華木球會舉辦;首位全港女子單打冠軍是岩士唐夫人(Mrs. Armstrong),她在1920年於九龍三軍會贏得桂冠;而香港硬地錦標賽則於1937年在中華遊樂會首辦。

早年,大部份全港性錦標都由一小群極具實力的球手所包攬,當中包括S.A Rumjahn。他曾五奪全港單打冠軍,並與他的堂兄弟H.D. Rumjahn於1925至1935年連續11屆奪得全港男子雙打奪標,二人攜手合共贏得13次男雙冠軍;徐煒培在1936年獲得首個香港冠軍後,在34年間共收穫32個香港冠軍,當中不少是夥拍其兄徐潤培於雙打賽事中奪得;最成功的一位球手要數到葉觀雄,這位1948年中國全運會冠軍得主由1947年起,20年間在草地場及硬地場贏得26項單打、27項雙打,合共53個香港冠軍。1954年,葉觀雄與蔡國蘅代表香港出戰溫布頓網球錦標賽。



上世紀50年代,香港木球會定期舉行表演賽,邀請來自澳洲、美國、瑞典以及印度的頂尖台維斯盃球手參加;1957年,由「現代網球之父」卡拉馬(Jack Kramer),以及施古拿(Pancho Segura),賀特(Lew Hoad)和羅斯禾(Ken Rosewall)幾位知名球手組成的「卡拉馬馬戲團」亦曾來到遮打道獻技。隨著1968年全球網球開放時代(所有選手都可以競爭所有賽事,促進網球運動公開化及職業化)的到來,業餘與職業網球之間的壁壘被打破,網球運動更為大眾所認識,香港草地網球協會亦隨即啟動首個發展計劃。

郭韜先生(Ken Catton)在1970年成為香港草地網球協會的副會長和榮譽秘書長,及後於1971年當選會長,任期5年。他是1972年香港首項設獎金職業巡迴賽賽事的奠基人之一,一年後引進商業贊助吸引擁有世界排名的球手參賽。當時舉辦賽事的地點維多利亞公園設備尚略顯不足,至1982年按議案建成了一座擁有超過3,600個座位的場館,並予巡迴賽使用。

隨著大眾對網球的興趣日益濃厚,香港邀請了不少世界頂尖球手來港參賽,其中包括於1973年贏得香港站冠軍的傳奇球手拿華(Rod Laver),這也是郭韜推動亞洲網球巡迴賽的功績之一。在早期的職業賽事中,其他來到香港作賽的球星包括有羅斯禾,哥羅斯(Jimmy Connors),拿斯達斯(Ilie Nastase),麥安羅(John McEnroe)以及蘭迪(Ivan Lendl)等。



女子網球方面香港於80年代達成了一系列里程碑:1980年首次舉辦女子職業網球(WTA)巡迴賽賽事,1981年香港首次參加聯合會盃(FED CUP)。一眾香港青年女子球手取得佳績:希麗敏(當時她代表香港作賽)於1983年取得溫布頓錦標賽青年組單打亞軍以及雙打冠軍(夥拍芬域克Patty Fenwick);1985年女子16歲以下代表隊 (Paulette Moreno, Lisa Kwok and Christine Kwok)晉身世界青年盃世界組決賽(青少年聯合會盃前身),並取得第六名。此一系列成功最終轉化成戰力,令香港代表隊於1987年入圍聯合會盃世界組遺材賽決賽。


郭韜與M.W. Lo於1976年創辦了香港網球贊助人協會,整合職業賽事的日程安排,而賽事帶來的收益亦透過香港網球基金會資助青少年網球發展。基金會自1988年成立,為網球發展向企業籌集贊助及捐款。

隨著商業贊助的增加,賽事的獎金也日益豐厚,香港的世界級職業賽事持續蓬勃發展:包括1973至87年的男子格蘭披治大獎賽,以及1990至2002年間舉辦,屬於世界職業男子巡迴賽(ATP)分站賽事的沙龍公開賽,歷屆冠軍包括有森柏斯(Pete Sampras),亞加斯(Andre Agassi) 以及深受香港球迷愛戴的張德培(Michael Chang).

其餘頂級賽事還有1988至97年一年一度舉行的萬寶路16人表演賽,以及吸引到包括嘉芙(Steffi Graf)、 軒芝絲(Martina Hingis)、莎蓮娜威廉絲(Serena Williams)、維納斯威廉絲(Venus Williams)、舒拉寶娃(Maria Sharapova)及姬莉絲達絲(Kim Clijsters) 等一眾女子職業網球高手參加,於1999年至2011年舉行的香港網球經典賽。眾多頂級賽事的舉行令本地球迷有機會一睹世界頂尖球手的風采。








香港在國際青少年男子女子隊際賽事中亦取得不俗成績,在過去二十年間多次出戰青少年台維斯盃、青少年聯合會盃以及世界青少年網球決賽。2019年,男子16歲以下代表隊於青少年台維斯盃獲得第八名,是屆年來最好成績。近幾年,本地青少年球手亦在大滿貫的青少年組別賽事留下足跡,當中以王康怡成績最為彪炳:她在2020年的澳洲網球公開賽青年組別打進最後八強,2019年夥拍加拿大球手歌娜特(Melodie Collard)在美國網球公開賽青少年組殺入女子雙打四強,同年康怡亦在溫布頓網球錦標賽青年組晉級十六強;黃澤林在2018年美國贏得著名的香橙盃(Orange Bowl)14歲以下組別冠軍後,亦於2020年的澳洲網球公開賽青年組單打及雙打均晉級次圈。
