Overview

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.

I had to beg my wife to come to the International Tennis Hall of Fame on our visit to Newport a couple of weeks ago. She is not a tennis fan, except she likes Raphael Nadal. Go figure. Actually, she is not a sports fan...More

Great grounds and tennis courts to walk around. There’s no fee to just walk around the place. Lots of interesting exhibits in the museum itself along with the first tennis court. There are no nets or lines usually unless there’s a tournament. Ticket costs 15$...More

We arrived a little too late to take in the Museum. Closes around 17.00. However, you are allowed to walk around the grounds and look at the Fred Perry statue etc.

What a great place. I’ve always wanted to visit and I wasn’t disappointed. Aside from the list of enshrined players, the HOF also includes exhibits on equipment over the decades, clothing styles, and interesting videos. The grass courts on the grounds (there are several) are...More
