Game, set, match! Hot off Wimbledon, the top ATP World Tour pros have arrived in Newport to compete in the Hall of Fame Open July 14 - 21, 2019. Contested on the historic grass tennis courts of the International Tennis Hall of Fame, which have hosted all the legends of the sport since 1880, the tournament is the only event played on grass courts outside of Europe, and it offers the only opportunity to see professional men's tennis in the Northeast prior to the US Open.
Stroll the grounds of the historic International Tennis Hall of Fame and savor sweet libations, savory snacks and specialty items from a variety of vendors. Concessions including sandwiches, salads, pizza, a full bar and more will also be available.
Don't forget to head inside for a look at the museum featuring nearly 2,000 objects from the Hall of Fame's collection of more than 25,000 artifacts, interactive exhibits, videos and more. All ticket holders receive one museum admission with their tournament ticket.
After you've explored the grounds, grab a seat (shaded seating available in individual box seats Monday - Thursday. Quantity is limited!) to watch your favorite players take the court.
