The Hong Kong Tennis Association (HKTA) was founded in 1909. It was initially called the Hong Kong Lawn Tennis Association before the name was changed to Hong Kong Tennis Association in 1984. Its stated objective is to promote tennis, to nurture talented players and to raise the standard of the game in Hong Kong. The HKTA is a non-profit organisation and is recognised by the Asian Tennis Federation (ATF) and the International Tennis Federation (ITF). The Association is guided by a Council whose members are elected for a two-year term.
