The Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame opened in June 1999 in Knoxville, Tennessee. The 35,000 square foot facility was completed by Bell Construction. It is the only facility of its kind dedicated to all levels of women’s basketball. With the 2019 Induction, the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame will celebrate its 21st Anniversary and add seven new members to our prestigious Hall, honoring 171 inductees. In addition to preserving the history of the game, the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame is also the perfect location for special events, proms, wedding receptions, corporate meetings, birthday parties, and reunions, to name a few. So whether you are looking for inspiration, education or just plain fun, the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame is the place to find it!
World’s Largest Basketball
The Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame is home to the world’s largest basketball. The Hall of Fame basketball measures 30-feet tall and weighs 10 tons.
In the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame, you can test your skills on three different courts, a dribbling course, and a passing skills area. There is also a photo area where you can pretend to be different players throughout history.
As you enter the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame’s Pat Summitt Rotunda, the first thing you see is the Eastman Statue. This 17-foot bronze statue exemplifies our mission to “honor the past, celebrate the present, and promote the future” of women’s basketball. Each inductee receives a replica of this statue upon their induction into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame
