Gates commemorate Sinclair McGibbon, who was a founding member of the Royal Kings Park Tennis Club.

President (1927-28) of the Rotary Club of Perth, McGibbon was a director of Rotary International. While he enjoyed golf and motor-boating, his favourite recreation was tennis. He had joined the King's Park Tennis Club in 1903, and was president (1924-38) and a life member (1926) of the Western Australian Lawn Tennis Association. Practical, if domineering, he organized visits to Perth by ranked Australian players and leading teams from France, Japan, Britain and Germany. The King's Park Tennis Club named its gates and a public stand after him.
