James Outram Anderson (17 September 1894 – 22 December 1973) was an Australian tennis player.

Anderson was the eighth child of James Outram Anderson and his wife Patience. He was educated at Camden Grammar School. Anderson's best shot was his forehand drive, which he hit with very little topspin.[4] He is best remembered for his three victories at his home tournament: the Australasian Championships in 1922, 1924 and 1925.[5] Anderson also won the doubles tournament at the 1922 Wimbledon Championships and 1924 Australian Championships.[6]

Between 1919 and 1925 Anderson played in 15 ties for the Australian Davis Cup team and compiled a record of 28 wins and 8 losses.[7]

He married Maud Irene Whitfield (died 1955) on 24 March 1917. They had five children. He married a widow, Mabel Little, on 18 November 1957. Anderson died on 22 December 1973 at Gosford. He was survived by his second wife.

In 2013 Anderson was inducted in the International Tennis Hall of Fame.[8]
