After three years of planning and $3 million dollars the Museum at the International Tennis Hall of Fame is ready to re-open to the public. On May 20, 2015 the Museum will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony and open its doors once again.
The newest attraction is a hologram of Roger Federer, the first of its kind in a U.S. sports museum. Visitors will feel like they are actually in a room with the tennis superstar.
In addition to the Federer hologram, the museum will showcase a new interactive tennis trivia game and a 3D rotating globe for visitors to learn about tournaments and players around the world. The galleries have been redesigned and promise to tell the history of tennis through the lives and career of the Hall of Famers. There are 243 Hall of Famers and more than 25,000 artifacts. The 2015 Tennis Hall of Fame inductees include Amelie Mauresmo (France) a former world No. 1 and two time major champion, David Hall (Australia) a six-time Paralympic medalist and tennis industry leader Nancy Jeffett, who helped grow the sport for women and juniors.
The International Tennis Hall of Fame is a nonprofit dedicated to preserving the history of tennis, for more information visit tennisfame.com. To learn more about the exciting new Roger Federer hologram, check out the video below!
