Overview
More
Built in 1880 by the architectural firm, McKim, Mead & White, the Museum galleries chronicle the rich history of tennis through interactive exhibits, dynamic videos and popular memorabilia from historic champions and the superstars of today. Dramatically set in the original club rooms of the Casino, visitors of all ages delight in Stanford White's architectural detail as well as the state-of-the-art gallery experience. In the Woolard Family Enshrinement Gallery plaques commemorate the great players, coaches, administrators and writers that have been inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame. There are 235 Hall of Famers, representing 20 countries. In 1986, the International Tennis Federation (ITF), the governing body of tennis, officially recognized the International Tennis Hall of Fame & Museum as the sport's official Hall of Fame. The property today is now 6 acres and consists of the Newport Casino, 13 grass courts, 1 clay court, an indoor tennis facility, the Court Tennis facility, a grandstand and a historic 297-seat theatre. In July, the venue annually hosts the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships for the Van Alen Cup, the only ATP professional grass court tournament in the Americas. These are the only professional grass courts that are open to the public for play.

The International Tennis Hall of Fame is in a class all by itself. One can scarcely believe so much tennis memorabilia, so many fascinating exhibits, and so much information can be housed within this architecturally intriguing building. TripAdvisor asks a reviewer to estimate the time...More

If your into tennis then this is the place for you! Amazing facility including many grass courts, clay courts and hard courts. Great locker room facility. Ask for Rick for a private tennis lesson. Went above and beyond to help improve my game.

A lovely and historic place that's as busy today as it was 100 years ago. The architecture is classic McKim, Mead & White, and everything is well-maintained. My favorite touches: the memorial bricks (there is one for Bud Collins) and the plaques on the walls...More

We didn't do the tour but it was great just to walk around and see the grass courts. Our son loved running around the grounds. Would definitely suggest stopping by.
