About

Knoxville is home to the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame, the only facility of its kind dedicated to all levels of women’s basketball. 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 the Hall’s mission to “honor the past, celebrate the present, and promote the future” of women’s basketball.

With the 2019 Induction, the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame celebrated its 21st Anniversary and added seven new members to the prestigious Hall, honoring 171 inductees. 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. 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.
