 Name a Seat FAQs

 Why name a seat?
The Newport Casino is the birth place of American tournament tennis, with the first U.S. National Lawn Tennis Championships being played on the grass courts here in 1881. Today, the Newport Casino is home to the International Tennis Hall of Fame, a non-profit institution dedicated to preserving the history of tennis, inspiring and encouraging junior tennis development, providing a landmark for tennis enthusiasts worldwide, and enshrining tennis heroes and heroines with the highest honor in the sport of tennis - induction into the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Newport continues to be an important stop in professional tennis and is home to the only ATP World Tour tournament played on grass courts in the Americas – the Dell Technologies Hall of Fame Open for the Van Alen Cup.


Can I choose my seat?
Approximate seat locations can be requested and will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Where available, rows or blocks of seats may be requested and named. The International Tennis Hall of Fame will not be able to guarantee you can purchase tickets in your named seat(s) for the Dell Technologies Hall of Fame Open or other events held on center court.

How will I be recognized?
A plaque with your personal dedication will be mounted on your seat(s). The plaques can accommodate a message of 35 characters including spaces. The naming rights to the seat will be for the lifetime of the new stadium seating structure or 50 years, whichever is longer.
