The Women’s Sports Museum is soon becoming a reality with a permanent location already in the offing. This state-of-the-art museum wants to inspire young girls to rise above baseless stereotypes through appreciating women who have defied all odds to achieve greatness through sports.
The museum will be built in Sarasota, Florida. Sarasota is a magical town and a perfect destination for sports, beaches, and arts hence an ideal home for the much-anticipated Women’s Sports Museum. The town has hosted several sporting events such as USA Ultimate National Club Championships, Puma Soccer Tournament, World Rowing Masters Regatta, Sarasota ATP, World Rowing Coastal Championships, among many more.
The museum will provide an interactive platform and extraordinary exhibits that appreciate relentless women who have gone the extra mile and exceeding expectations in sports. Young girls with a keen interest in sports are expected to draw inspiration from the women who have gone before, and WSM will give them the motivation they need to realize their goals and targets.
The Women’s Sports Museum attracts support
WSM is committed to executing its original five-year plan. For three years, it has been creating awareness and gaining support from the community through organizing yearly galas. It seems to be on the right cause as its plan has already excited several individuals, such as Kei Nishikori and Naomi Osaka. The two have been vocal about drumming support for the Women’s Sports Museum. They have donated items as a way of making this commitment by WSM a reality.
