Formally known as Aorangi Terrace, the Hill is situated to the north of No.1 Court, and has become a popular area for Grounds Pass Ticket Holders to watch the action on the Show Courts. 

During the 1990s, it was widely known as 'Henman Hill', as British fans gathered to watch the British No.1 compete in four Wimbledon semi-finals. It has since also been dubbed 'Murray Mound', reflecting the support for Andy Murray at Wimbledon. 

The origins of the name 'Aorangi' date back to 1967. The Club purchased the 11 acres to the north of Centre Court from John Barker Ltd. of Kensington in 1967 and subsequently granted a lease to the New Zealand Sports and Social Club, who named it Aorangi Park. Aorangi, meaning 'Cloud in the Sky', is the Maori name for Mount Cook.
