Through the Donate a Racquet Program, tickets will be available for matches held on Monday, July 9th and Tuesday, July 10th. 

Usable racquets may be sent to the International Tennis Hall of Fame prior to July 8 to the mailing address: 194 Bellevue Avenue, Newport, RI 02840.

Since 1987, the International Tennis Hall of Fame has collected racquets and provided them to numerous youth groups, including the Boys & Girls Clubs of Newport County, Rhode Island Special Olympics, the Salvation Army, Newport County YMCA, regional school athletic departments, and many other community organizations and programs. Donated racquets will be used during the annual youth clinic held on Sunday, July 8 during the Campbell’s Hall of Fame Tennis Championships, where ATP pros participate in the instruction and direction of skills drills, strategies, service motion, and the fun of footwork. Youth groups from the area are invited to participate in this special tournament event, where all participants are given a donated racquet (theirs personally to keep!). 

The Campbell’s Hall of Fame Tennis Championships, played for the Van Alen Cup, is the only ATP event held on grass in North America.
