Grass courts in Newport

Tennis Hall of Fame

Our main objective on Thursday was to go to the Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, RI. It is housed in the Newport Casino in downtown Newport. The grass courts are open to the public and there were lots of people dressed in their tennis whites on the courts. Since the Campbell’s Hall of Fame Tennis Championships were last week, there was some wear on the grass. Some of the courts were also set up for croquet. It’s all very civilized here.

We really enjoyed the Hall of Fame. There were videos and statistics on each player who has been inducted. There were sections devoted to each decade of tennis. In addition to looking at the past, there were also exhibits showcasing tennis today.
