1915-1925 Newport Casino Invitational Lawn Tennis Tournament Challenge Cup

The Newport Casino Invitation Tournament was played at the Newport Casino from 1915 to 1967.

Following the U.S. National Men’s Championships’ move from Newport to Forest Hills, championship tennis continued with the Newport Casino Invitation Tournament. Played every year before the U.S. National Championships, the Casino Invitation welcomed the best international players to hone their play during America’s grass court season. For fifty-two years, the Invitation played host to many of the game’s greatest champions.

First won by Richard Norris Williams II in 1915, this trophy was retired by William Johnston in 1925 following his 6-3, 6-3, 6-3 defeat over Brian Norton. Johnston had previously won the tournament in 1922 and 1924.
