The Women's Basketball Hall of Fame opened in June 1999 in Knoxville, Tennessee. It is the only facility of its kind dedicated to all levels of women's basketball. The outside of the striking 32,000 square foot Hall of Fame is encompassed by two amazing basketballs. The world's largest basketball is located on the north end of the Hall, weighs 10 tons and sits on top of a glass staircase that resembles a basketball net. A brick courtyard, shaped like a basketball, is located on the southern end of the facility. Many of the bricks are engraved to honor guests, inductees, and a host of others who have chosen to leave their legacy at the Hall of Fame. Inside, the Hall is a bright fun-filled facility anchored with a 17-foot bronze sculpture by California artist Elizabeth McQueen, that exemplifies our mission to "honor the past, celebrate the present, and promote the future" of women's basketball.

The Hall is filled with multimedia presentations and numerous basketball artifacts, photographs, scrapbooks, medals, trophies, and old uniforms that bring the history of women's basketball to life. In the State Farm Tip-Off theater, you will see Hoopful of Hope, a 15-minute video production covering the history of our game. The production shows some of the all-time greats from the sport including players, coaches, and teams from AAU, collegiate, and professional organizations.
