The Hall of Fame Tennis Championship, an event currently known as the Campbell’s Hall of Fame Tennis Championship is a longstanding international tennis tournament, held annually in Rhode Island. Every year, since 1976 the top names in the sport have been traveling to Newport Rhode Island in July to take part of the event. The tournament, which is men’s tournament only, currently falls under the ATP World Tour 250 series of tournaments.

The tournament is also filled with weekly events and award presentations that take place right in the hall of fame.
Held outdoors on grass courts, the game features a unique style of place because of the grass which tends to make the game and the ball slower than on other types of courts. This element of the game, which adds a unique style of play is actually a favorite among fans as it tends to provide players with a unique type of challenge. Every year, the tournament is held directly following Wimbledon. Due to its close proximity to the event being held before the US Open, many times top seeds will not attend, giving lower seeded players a chance to participate and win. This unique aspect of the tournament allows fans of the sport to see some of their lower ranked favorite players compete for the Hall of Fame cup.
Even though some top players will choose not to participate in the event, the tournament has still had top contenders and top winners like John Isner, Mardy Fish and Scott Lipsky in the past few years alone. The tournament has also had famous top seeded players and Grand Slam finalists participate and win such as Greg Rusedski and Mark Philippoussis. With players like this and the chance to visit the International Tennis Hall of Fame, the summertime tournament consistently brings in hoards of tennis lovers to come see the action live.
