Celebrating over 125 years of women's basketball through interactive exhibits and ball court activities, the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame opened in June 1999 in Knoxville, Tennessee. It is the only facility of its kind in the world dedicated to all levels of women's basketball
World’s Largest Basketball
The Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame is home to the world’s largest basketball. The Ball measures 30-feet tall and weighs 10 tons.
Ring of Honor
The Ring of Honor consists of over 100 jerseys hanging from the rafters of the back rotunda. These jerseys represent the top high school and college players from each season.
In the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame, you can test your basketball skills on three different courts, a timed dribbling course, a passing skills area, and a vertical leap challenge.
Hall of Honor
The Hall of Honor is where we formally recognize the individuals who have been inducted into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame. Each inductee has helped the game of women’s basketball grow, and their achievements are highlighted in this area through exhibits and interactive displays..
Mother of Women’s Basketball
Senda Berenson is considered the “Mother of Women’s Basketball.” She authored and developed the first basketball guide for women;s basketball.
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.
