International Tennis Hall of Fame

International Tennis Hall of Fame
Tennis Facilities and Squash Pavilion - Newport, Rhode Island

Working with Stern in the setting and context of this amazing complex has been exciting. Their respect for the history of the complex and its place in Newport will result in a beautiful project.
"We asked the architects to bring a specialist to the team. Having SportsPLAN Studio on board to assist the designers with the unique features and challenges of tennis and squash courts has been extremely valuable."
- Dan Paquette,
SCM Construction Management Owner’s Representative

SportsPLAN Studio is currently assisting Completion Date: Phase I - 2015 Robert A. M. Stern Architects on an exciting tennis and squash project for the International Tennis Hall of Fame complex in Newport.
