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.

You are on Bellevue Avenue with its shopping center, shops and everything. Crowded and busy. Then you pass underneath that porch (194 Bellevue) and you walk back 100 years in time. The building, the grass court, the museum: everything is just perfect and so quiet....More

We just happened to drop by. There was so much to see that we did not see everything. There were exhibits, videos and a movie. There was information about every tennis star plus the men and women behind the scenes.

We were so surprised to come across this gem right in the middle of Bellevue Avenue. A must-see, especially to view all the grass courts on the property.

This is a wonderful property, it must have been quite the place a hundred or so years ago. I was only interested in viewing the picturesque property & buildings and it was well worth the visit.. This is a real gem of a spot.
