Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame

Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame The Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame offers a picture of the past, as well as telling the story of what’s happening today in Tennessee sports. We are located inside the Bridgestone Arena just past the visitors center at the main entrance.
The Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame, a non-profit 501c3, was founded by a group known as the Middle Tennessee Sportswriters and Broadcasters Association. Its early growth was due largely to three of the founders: C. E. Jackson Jr., Charlie Sons, and the Rev. A. Richard Smith. The late Bernie Moore, retired commissioner of the SEC, and the late Bishop Frank Julian guided the fledgling Tennessee Sport...

The Hall is a state of the art, 7,200 square foot, interactive facility that is both entertaining and educational. The museum teaches our students Tennessee history using sports as the catalyst. It honors athletes, coaches, sportswriters, and sports administrators who have made an impact on the history of sports in Tennessee.

Mission: The Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame subscribes to the principle that sports serve society's highest ideals. By educating youth, through sport, it promotes the virtues of competition, fair play, friendship, solidarity, mutual understanding and respect for human dignity. These principles are identical with those enshrined in the Olympic Charter. The Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame focuses the majority of our attention on our educational objectives. The organization is built on the premise that the lessons of sports have a tremendous impact on society. Sports provide a unique opportunity for self-discovery. This is especially true for children, who learn about their physical capabilities, confronting both physical and mental challenges everyday. With proper guidance, they learn that hard work and perseverance bring results. They will inevitably experience defeat, but with sound coaching, they will learn that defeat is only a lesson, and that success and recognition are earned by effort. Sports also provide an opportunity for all kinds of people from greatly differing backgrounds to interact with and enjoy each other. The lessons of sports provide valuable guidance in the quest for a happier, healthier and more productive life.
