If you think your budding athletes are the next comings of Roger Federer or the Williams sisters, this is the year to check out the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, R.I. The Hall of Fame has announced that all children ages 16 and under will be admitted free of charge in 2010.
In addition to the museum’s collection of trophies, apparel, equipment, and memorabilia, it offers a scavenger hunt for kids and on select days even Nintendo Wii tennis to get the blood pumping. You can see plaques honoring the more than 200 players, coaches, administrators, and writers who have been enshrined in the Hall, and when the weather warms, the Hall of Fame’s grass courts are available to the public to an additional fee. Weekend hackers are welcome along with child prodigies.
