Facilities and Capacity
Situated on seven acres of beautifully-manicured lawns, the International Tennis Hall of Fame offers numerous indoor and outdoor spaces to host celebrations of love. The East and Executive Porches are breathtaking and intimate sites to exchange vows that overlook the historic grass tennis courts. These outdoor covered decks feature hardwood floors, vintage-inspired lanterns, and quaint architecture. The venue’s pièce de résistance is the Horseshoe Piazza and Court, which marks the entrance to this fabled building. The horseshoe-shaped covered brick walkway can hold up to 400 for cocktail receptions, while the lush piazza can accommodate 300 for al fresco dining. Up above this serene lawn, the USTA Wing, an extension of the museum, provides lovely views and an indoor location for dinner and dancing.
Weddings at the International Tennis Hall of Fame come with tables and chairs for up to 200 guests, complimentary WiFi, and rentable heaters. Clear screens can also be lowered on the covered patios to protect guests from inclement weather. Market string lights can be draped throughout the spaces to create a warm ambiance, and the venue also offers uplighting and dimmable recessed lighting. For guests’ amusements, lawn games such as croquet, cornhole, old-fashioned tennis, and giant Jenga are available to play on the grass courts. Other amenities include a personally inscribed brick on The Legends Walk and embossed wine glasses as party favors. The staff welcomes all licensed caterers and will work with couples throughout the planning process and execution to ensure everything is seamless and stress-free.
