The International Tennis Hall of Fame
History of the hall
There is a number of beautiful event venues in Newport, Rhode Island, but one that stands out as unique is The International Tennis Hall of Fame & Museum. Located at the Newport Casino, it is a national historic landmark dating back to 1880, this venue offers a number of indoor and outdoor spaces for wedding rehearsal dinners, receptions, and brunches. The grounds surrounding the museum are beautifully landscaped. They are creating a picturesque backdrop for first-look photos. The historic grass tennis courts attract visitors from across the world and create a wonderful ambiance for your wedding day.
How does it look like
The seven-acre property features an open-air Horseshoe Piazza for “al fresco” dining. Guests can also sip a cocktail on the USTA Porch, while overlooking the beautifully manicured grounds. Treat your guests to the beauty of the property and experience the newly renovated museum.
The unique beauty and grace of the International Tennis Hall of Fame is the perfect backdrop to create a classic reception surrounded by seven acres of lush greenery in the heart of Newport. At the International Tennis Hall of Fame, you can host a rehearsal dinner, celebrate your wedding reception, and thank guests during a post-wedding brunch!
A great spot for your cocktail hour or wedding ceremony is the classic Horseshoe Piazza. This uniquely curved, open-air covered porch is the focal point of the courtyard. It sits in the center of the historic grass courts and offers magnificent views of the property.
Another great choice, the UTSA Wing and Porch, were designed with moveable exhibits.
The exhibits can be adjusted to enhance your experience. French doors open onto the Porch, offering stunning views of the renowned Horseshoe Court. Your wedding deserves to be in the Hall of Fame!
