ushabuildingThe U. S. Handball Association established its hall of fame in 1954. There are two categories of inductees: players and contributors.

To be inducted, a player must be over 40 years of age and retired from serious competition for at least five years. Contributors are honored for outstanding service to the game on the national level.

The hall of fame is located in the USHA’s national headquarters in Tucson, Arizona. In addition to plaques honoring the inductees, it contains photographs, plaques, medals, trophies, and other memorabilia, as well as a library that includes tournament and instructional videos along with books. A Wall of Champions list winners of national one-, three-, and four-wall tournaments.
