International Tennis Hall of Fame – Tennis Week 2015

Tennis Week 2015

Tennis Week is one of Newport’s best summer events. The week of July 11 – 19 is all about the Historic Hall of Fame Tennis Championship, located at the Newport International Tennis Hall of Fame, and approximately three blocks from our Inn.

Tennis Week offers up a great opportunity to experience the sport’s history and nostalgia, along with being a part of a new inductee ceremony. Founded by tennis innovator, James Van Alen, the International Tennis Hall of Fame has been home to events, such as The Hall of Fame Tennis Championships, for years.

2015 Tennis Week

This year, there are several players being inducted into the Class of 2015 International Tennis Hall of Fame. WTA Star Amelie Mauresmo, Australian Wheelchair Champion David Hall, and Tennis Industry Leader Nancy Jeffett will be inducted on July 18 during the Enshrinement Ceremony starting at 12:00 pm.

Aside from the Class of 2015 inductee ceremony, there are several other fun events that you can check out and be a part of. Free tennis clinics (complimentary with Tennis Week ticket prices), Alex and Ani ladies day, and singles and doubles tournaments (players soon to be announced) are some of the featured events happening throughout the week.

Tennis Week ticket prices vary day-to-day but can range anywhere between $15 for a single day to $245 for the entire week. Hall of Fame members can save $8 on their ticket purchases, along with first access to the best seats.

Game, Set, Match!

Tennis week is perfect for any tennis lover. It provides a chance to learn more about the sport, engage in fun tennis activities, and be a part of history.
