Newport Tennis and Golf
Two more reasons to visit the "City by the Sea"
Newport tennis and golf, in addition to the mansions and the beaches, are major draws to the city.
Not only will you find some of Rhode Island's best golf courses in Newport, but we're also proud to be home to the International Tennis Hall of Fame.
In addition to viewing the exhibits and watching tournaments here every summer, you can also play on the grass courts (reservation required).
You can play tennis at the following locations:
