The Australian Tennis Museum (NSW) originated in 1983 when several tennis enthusiasts approached Tennis NSW with a proposal to collect and preserve Australian tennis memorabilia. The Friends of the NSW Tennis Association Inc. (The Friends) was established at White City with the support of Tennis NSW and Tennis Australia.
For the next six years, The Friends operated out of one room which served as a museum, storage area, library and workroom. Exhibitions were staged during major tournaments and visitor and membership numbers steadily increased.
In 1989 The Friends moved to a larger area located under the new Western Stand constructed at White City. Exhibition development and research continued, and The Friends developed travelling exhibitions for regional areas and liaised with other museum and sports institutions to provide object loans and research material.
In 2005, the Australian Tennis Museum moved to the new facilities provided by Tennis NSW at the Sydney International Tennis Centre, Sydney Olympic Park.
