Bio Garton "Gar" Maxwell Hone was an Australian tennis player of the 1920s and 1930s. He also played Sheffield Shield cricket for South Australia.

Hone excelled at various sports while at Adelaide University, earning Half Blues in tennis, Australian rules football and cricket. While at University, he played his only first-class match for the South Australian cricket team, against Victoria in the 1919/20 Shield season. He was a right handed top order batsman and made just two in his first innings before being bowled. In his second innings he was dismissed leg before wicket by Warwick Armstrong after making 18. He bowled two overs of leg spin but was expensive, going for 21 runs.

He first appeared at the Australasian Championships in 1924, where he was defeated by eventual champion James Anderson in the semi finals (he also reached the quarterfinals in 1925 and 1926). Hone went one better in the mixed doubles by making the final, with Esna Boyd. They lost the decider in straight sets to the pairing of Daphne Akhurst and James Willard. In 1925 he had his best ever showing in the men's doubles, with a semi final appearance, after teaming up with Rupert Wertheim. He also played in the 1926, 1929, 1934 and 1938 Championships.
