About

The International Tennis Hall of Fame is a wedding venue located in Newport, Rhode Island. Steeped in the rich history of tennis and its greatest players, this unique property combines modern touches with timeless elegance. Nestled on the Narragansett Bay in the upscale Bellevue Avenue area, the hall is centrally located among Gilded Age mansions and conveniently accessible to out-of-town guests. The museum features over 25,000 artifacts and hundreds of thousands of images, videos, and publications. These exhibits are fully interactive and even include a hologram of the legendary Roger Federer. Ideal for tennis enthusiasts and neophytes alike, the venue provides a romantic atmosphere for couples who want to wed surrounded by retro opulence.

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.

Services Offered
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.

    Unique venue - Fantastic staff

    Cullen and his team at ITHF have been absolutely amazing to work with over the last year. Cullen was always responsive, always ready to help make an idea come to life, and when the pandemic hit he went above and beyond to ensure we rescheduled our event and didn't loose any money in the process. I would highly recommend using them!

    Beautiful venue and helpful team!

    The International Tennis Hall of Fame is an absolutely beautiful venue, and their team is wonderful to work with. Cullen has been incredibly responsive right from the beginning. We unfortunately had to postpone our wedding to next summer due to COVID-19, and Cullen made the date change so quickly and seamlessly without any additional cost. We couldn't be more grateful to work with such a gracious team. I'm really bummed about postponing my wedding, but so looking forward to celebrating my rehearsal dinner here next year!

    Stunning Venue, Accommodating Staff- Perfect for a Unique Newport Wedding

    We couldn’t be more pleased to have our wedding at the Tennis Hall of Fame. We’ve been frequent visitors to Newport and the HoF, but when we got engaged, we couldn’t resist booking the Tennis Hall of Fame for our wedding. Cullen, the Director of Hospitality has been our main point of contact for the past 2.5 years of planning, and he has more than accommodating to ensure that we have all the information we need and that all goes smoothly. Due to the COVID pandemic, we have had to postpone our wedding from June 2020 to 2021. The Hall of Fame was extremely dedicated in working with us to set up a new date, and has generously supported us in postponing at no financial expense to us. We feel blessed to be able to be getting married at such a beautiful venue with such an accommodating team to work with, and we couldn’t be happier.
