The Hall of Fame Tennis Championships is great news for those not ready for the grass court season to end at the conclusion of Wimbledon! As the world’s most prestigious tennis tournament concludes, another grass court event begins right across the pond, the Dell Technologies Hall of Fame Open at the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, Rhode Island.

Although this event is not part of the US Open Series, it’s the first stop of the American summer swing. The jet lag is bad enough, so why make players immediately transition from grass courts to hard courts too, right? Thanks, International Tennis Hall of Fame! This tournament is the only professional men’s tennis event in the Northeast prior to the US Open, as well as the only professional tournament played on grass in North America.

Hotels Near International Tennis Hall of Fame

Newport is known as a summer resort town. While it still remains upscale, it is totally accessible to those of all economic backgrounds. That was not the case back in the day, however, and that is obvious in the architecture found around Newport. This city is a perfect picture of what extraordinary wealth looked like in the Gilded Age, and lucky for us, we can now stay in beautiful, historical vacation homes that have been converted into hotels and B&B’s.

  • Hotel Viking – This hotel is located in the heart of downtown Newport, in a stunning red brick building that can’t be missed. A representation of Newport’s Gilded Age past, this luxury hotel combines old world charm with modern day luxury. Enjoy a drink on the rooftop, a massage in SpaFjor, or a delicious meal at one of their incredible restaurants.
  • Castle Hill Inn – Widely considered the top hotels in town, Castle Hill Inn provides guests with the warmth and serenity of the 19th century sea-side lifestyle. Set upon a 40-acre plot of oceanside property, you can stay in beach houses and cottages set next to the Inn’s private beach. This is the perfect place to come relax and be taken care of.
  • Grace Vanderbilt– This hotel is the perfect intersection of boutique, luxury, and history. Originally a Vanderbilt mansion, this vintage property will make you feel like a member of the Vanderbilt family. Enjoy indoor and outdoor pools, a spa, rooftop views, and unforgettable food.
  • Gilded – This place is as quirky as it gets. They put their own spin on the Gilded Age style, with bright rooms that paint the image of the past in a modern, chic, and unique way. Hang out and play billiards, give the croquet practice green a try, or just sip champagne like a boss in your suite, while feeling just plain cool.
  • Newport Marriott Hotel – Newport is all about the water, so may as well stay right next to the harbor! This hotel is situated in a first rate waterfront location. It even has an outdoor deck to enjoy a drink on as you watch the sun set over the harbor. The hotel recently underwent a $35 million renovation, so there’s never been a better time to stay here.
  • Hampton Inn & Suites – Located in Middletown, RI, just 2 miles outside of downtown Newport. This is a great option to stay a little further out and get a better rate than in downtown.

Venue Information

The International Tennis Hall of Fame is among the most prestigious tennis venues in the entire world. Adorned in beautiful flowers as a backdrop to lush, green tennis courts, surrounded by a building reminiscent of classic New England architecture, the Hall is a place that can be appreciated by anyone who steps into it’s hallowed grounds.

It has a history dating back to the 1800s, and is home to way more than just a tennis tournament. Each year a few retired pros are inducted into the Hall of Fame, placing them as immortals in the sports. The venue also has an incredible tennis museum, which details the history of the sport from it’s very origin, and all eras from then to the present day. Aside from tournament week and special events, the grass courts are available to the public as pay-and-play courts. There is also a “real tennis” court on site, which is the game that led to the invention of tennis as we know it today.

This is not a very large venue compared to other American tournaments such as Indian Wells, the Miami Open, and of course the US Open. That being said, pretty much every seat is a good seat for tennis-watching, so your primary concern should be getting a seat in the shade. A limited number of individual box seats in the shade are available, Monday through Thursday. West Court Chairs also get some shade in the afternoon as the sun moves behind the building.

Getting to the Hall of Fame Tennis Championship

Summer time in Newport is a crowded time, and that means parking can be a little bit difficult. That is why the Hall of Fame highly recommends parking at the Newport Transportation & Visitors Center, then taking the RIPTA trolley #67. The trolleys leave every 20 minutes during the week, and every 15 minutes on weekends. The trolley is $2 per person each way, and can only be paid for with cash.

When you board the trolley, ask the driver for a receipt. Later, when you go to exit the parking lot, present this receipt and your parking lot ticket to the parking attendant and you will be charged just $2 for all day parking. That means parking and a ride right to the Hall of Fame is only $6 per day! The Newport Transportation & Visitors Center is located at 23 America’s Cup Avenue, Newport, RI 02840
