What is there to do?

With three match points this is an important serve and - it's an ace! Yes kids, it's tennis time because we're off to the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, Rhode Island.

This sporty New England museum features exhibit galleries that chronicle the rich history of tennis through a number of interactive exhibits, videos, and popular memorabilia from historic champions as well as the superstars of today.

In fact, there are over 1,900 artifacts of tennis history displayed throughout the museum, AND an additional 7 acres of historic grounds to explore afterwards too!

The exhibits feature items from the full collection, which is actually comprised of around 25,000 artifacts - from champions shoes and uniforms, to medals and the tennis racquets that won them!

The Hall of Fame celebrates the great names of the sport, their stories, achievements and legacies. It's a great opportunity for kids to read the stories behind the successes, and be inspired as they realize it doesn't matter where you've come from - you can achieve anything if you put your mind to it!

You never know - one day THEIR photos might be up on those walls!

Kids can also learn about the history of the sport, from the mid 1800s to present day, and learn about moments that have influenced history both on and off the court.

The museum is located in the Newport Casino, which is even reason enough to visit as it dates back to 1880, and is a National Historic Landmark!

So get ready to serve kids, because the International Tennis Hall of Fame is waiting for that ace!
