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.

If you are a tennis fan, you should see the Hall of Fame where the first US Open was played; grass court to remember good old times. Nice restaurants nearby.

Five friends, all tennis players, attended a tournament here in August and were thrilled to watch the Bryan brothers win their doubles match. It's a beautiful setting, filled with history. Loved the Tennis Hall of Fame Museum.

Though we did not enter the museum, the grounds are free to the public and well worth a gander. The property has been carefully tended and is evocative of the era in which it was built.

It's like a step back in time as you walk in the entrance Grass courts and a vibe similar to Saratoga or Churchill Downs. It's a great place to see a concert and opening night is always something special!

The Tennis Hall of Fame is a real gem! There are a couple of pieces to the Hall of Fame -- part 1 being the museum itself, which was just redone in 2015. It features some great tennis memorabilia and a new Roger Federer hologram....More

This was a good museum! We decided to stop here as a bit of a time filler, and ended up wishing we had more time. The grounds are beautiful (although it was a rainy day). The information about all of the inductees was interesting and...More

There was a small kitchen eating area in which we had breakfast with the other guests. I am not sure how late it was open
