Many people think that the Duke of Kent is the Patron of British Tennis but he is the President of the All England Club which is why he is seen so often at Wimbledon and sometimes at the other Grand Slam events but it is the Duchess of Gloucester who attends tennis events outside of the Grand Slams.
She is Hon President of the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) - the governing body for all British Tennis. Duchess of Cambridge is now the Patron

She’s the new patron of both the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC) Wimbledon and the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA). Both were among the 25 patronages the Queen passed on in December.

HRH The Duke of Gloucester formally opened the Thomas Robinson Building in Lye this afternoon (Tuesday, March 28).

The Duke unveiled a plaque on the Grade II-listed former Lye and Wollescote Chapel in Cemetery Road, which was reopened in 2015 following a 13-year £1.2m restoration project.

The refurbishment was carried out by the West Midlands Historic Buildings Trust, which owns the buildings and which secured money from the Heritage Lottery Fund, with support from Dudley Council.
