The Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame is a hall of fame created to recognize people who became notable for participating in some form of sport in the American state of Tennessee.


The Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame was founded in 1966 by the Middle Tennessee Sportswriters and Broadcasters Association, although it is now managed by the State of Tennessee. It was originally located in Knoxville, Tennessee, on the University of Tennessee campus[1] but later moved to Nashville,[2] the state capital. It is located in Bridgestone Arena in downtown Nashville. In 2016 David Blackburn was elected its president.[3]
