About Women's Basketball Hall of Fame
The Women's Basketball Hall of Fame aims to preserve the history and legacy of its titular sport. Since its founding in 1999, it has honored more than 100 inductees, including high-school athletes, WNBA players, and decorated coaches, for their contribution to all levels of the game. Hundreds more have had their jerseys hung in the Ring of Honor or practiced their jump shot on one of the facility's three full-size basketball courts. The Hall of Fame also matches its inductees' super-sized talent with a super-sized basketball—the largest in the world, in fact. The 30-foot-tall, 10-ton Baden-branded sphere sits atop the building's atrium, where it was purportedly dropped during a giant robot's pickup game.
