Celebrating 100 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 dedicated to all levels of women's basketball.
The six members of the Class of 2014 are: Lin Dunn (coach),
Michelle Edwards (player), Mimi Griffin (contributor), Yolanda
Griffith (player), Jasmina Perazic (player), and Charlotte West
(contributor). The Class of 2014 will be formally inducted into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame on June 14, 2014 in Knoxville, TN.
With the addition of the Class of 2014, the WBHOF will
recognize the 1976 USA Olympic Team for their contributions to the game
in a display at the Hall entitled “Trailblazers of the Game”. The 1976
team will join the All American Red Heads, Edmonton Grads, the Former
Helms/Citizens Savings/Founders Bank, and the Wayland Baptist Flying
Queens as the only five groups recognized as “Trailblazers of the Game”.
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!
