International Tennis Hall of Fame
Explore its rich history in historic Newport Rhode Island
The International Tennis Hall of Fame is located on the site of the Newport Casino, the birthplace of American tournament tennis in 1881. This is a cool place to visit, even if you're not very interested in tennis (like me).
The Hall of Fame Museum is very unique. I think you'll enjoy the combination of entertaining interactive exhibits and the fascinating architecture of the building.
You'll see plaques, videos and other memorabilia highlighting the sport's greatest players, each set up in rooms that were part of the old Newport Casino building.
Newport RI is home to the:
This tournament is the only North American professional tournament held on a grass court, and features 32 of the world's top players. The victor will take home $500,000 and the Van Alen Cup.

This location is also available for your next corporate event, family reunion or wedding.
This is a perfect location to host a cocktail party for a few hundred of your closest friends outside on the horseshoe piazza. There is also a function room upstairs that can comfortably hold about 70 people for a sit-down dinner.
