The courts were built by George Moneypenny and Ignatius Bonomi circa 1811. The front facade has a central block of two storeys and seven bays, with a three bay centre with Tuscan portico. The four giant columns support a frieze and pediment. The end bays of the main block project slightly, and there is a continuous broad band over the ground and first floors. Behind the pediment is a central clock tower with a lead dome roof.
