Map & Directions
Famed International Tennis Hall of Fame (ITHF) grass courts. The Newport Casino complex is as wonderful today as it was on opening day in 1880. It stands as a National Historic Landmark (1987) and shrine to the game of tennis, having hosted in 1881 the first U.S. National Lawn Tennis Championships, the tournament that evolved into today’s US Open. Time has changed the happenings at the Casino, but the complex boasts the world’s oldest continuously used competition grass courts and the only competition grass courts open for play to the public.
