The Newport Casino, home to the International Tennis Hall of Fame, offers one of the most unique entertainment venues in North America. Our six-acre, Victorian shingle-style complex is a vibrant illustration of the grace and charm of 19th Century American design. When the Casino opened in 1880 as a social and sporting club, it served as the cultural life of the community. Now a National Historic Landmark, its remarkable legacy as a premier entertainment and sporting complex continues.

The Hall of Fame offers a setting of timeless elegance perfect for corporate hospitality and meetings, as well as receptions, ceremonies, luncheons, dinners and social gatherings. Within this unique facility, and available for rent, are stunning open-air latticed porches and an indoor function room that offers state-of-the-art technology and a beautiful porch overlooking the courtyard.

Our exquisite tennis museum is available for viewing and for cocktail parties and our thirteen grass courts are available for tennis or croquet. For a unique flair, we can arrange a tennis or croquet match on the Horseshoe Court with players dressed in turn-of-the-century costume, allowing your guests to feel as if they've stepped back in time.
