Museum and Grounds
There is nothing that “Newporters” love more than a good tennis match. With the marvelous grounds located right on Bellevue Avenue, one can not ask for a better place to spend the afternoon. The grounds of The Newport Casino were established in 1880! The Marshall Slocum Inn was established in 1855 before this elite social club, making the both of us historic establishments! The grounds include a museum, indoor/outdoor courts (including grass), and The Casino Theater. The grass courts host tournaments all summer long, bringing increased attention to the HOF museum. The museum is a tribute to the history of tennis, with a highly interactive design, boasting more than 2,000 objects from the HOF collection.

The Tennis Club
If you’ve considered giving tennis a shot (no pun intended), your time away in Newport might be the perfect opportunity! Learning on the same courts where many of “the greats” have played is quite the experience, and the expertise of the “pros” at the club is evident. For this reason, be sure to call in advance as the the club pros book up quickly. To check out rates for members and non-members, click here.
Work Up An Appetite
Alongside the tennis courts is a Newport gem, La Forge Casino Restaurant. Along with having delicious food, this venue hosts courtside brunch and dinners that capture the rich history and heritage of Newport. In addition to having a varied menu, La Forge also takes reservations via the Open Table iPhone/Android application making it easy to book on the fly! We’ll see you there for this wickedly Newport experience!
