Originally named the 'Mrs T S Hawkes Memorial Trophy' it was a sports prize awarded annually for Tennis to the Under 15 Tennis Champion from about 1939 until 1955 but then awarded to the winner of the Boys Open Singles Tennis Competition from 1956 until 2002. Prior to 1956, a trophy known as the 'F W Rolland Cup' was awarded to the winner of the Open Championship, however this became the award for the House Tennis Competition in 1956. No named trophy was awarded to girls. The 'Mrs' seems to have been dropped from the title in later years.

Mrs Hawkes had presented awards to both the Senior and Junior Tennis Champions for many years previous to 1939.

The Mrs T S Hawkes Trophy was named after Mrs T S Hawkes who had, for many years, presented the prize to the Open Tennis Singles Winner. The T S Hawkes trophy was last awarded as an open tennis championship in 2002 when the last tennis tournament was held at College. In 2004, a Fairest and Best Tennis award for both boys and girls was introduced.

See Also the Tennis entry for prize winners of the various tennis awards including the Open Singles Tennis Awards from 1912 to 2002.
