Washington Metropolitan Basketball Hall of Fame
The Nation's Capital, long regarded as a hot bed for basketball, past and present, took the ultimate step with the establishment of its own Hall of Fame. The Washington Metropolitan Basketball Hall of Fame gives recognition to worthy coaches, players, referees, executives and special contributers.
It should be no surprise to afficianados of the sport that Washington, D.C. is among the very few places to develop a permanent local shrine for those who helped to develop and popularise the hardwood sport. Established in 1981, the Washington Metropolitan Basketball Hall of Fame is administered by a Board of Directors comprised of civic leaders, school officials, media representatives, coaches and basketball-minded men and women from the Metropolitan area. The local Hall of Fame is associated with the Naismith Memorial National Basketball Hall of Fame located in Spring field, Massachusetts.
For over 40 years, the Washington Metropolitan Basketball Hall of Fame has been honoring the legends of DC area basketball with memorable banquets, luncheons and dinners. The WMBHOF events are one of the premier "must attend" functions in the city and are a wonderful opportunity for people to meet and mingle with their idols. Star-studded guest lists offer cache for corporate outings. Check back for the schedule of upcoming events.
