Celebrating the storied careers of the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame’s newest inductees

(VIRGNIA BEACH, VA) – April 22, 2023 saw the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame welcome 9 new inductees as part of the Hall’s 2023 Induction Ceremony at the Westin Hotel in Town Center of Virginia Beach. The 2023 Induction Ceremony was the culmination of a weekend full of events, as the Hall welcomed over 900 people to three events over the course of two days.

The weekend kicked-off with a Welcome Reception Friday April 21 at Three Notch’d Brewery in Town Center of Virginia Beach. There the Hall of Fame welcomed the incoming inductees and their families for a relaxed evening that also featured an on-site broadcast from the Hall’s media partner, Priority Auto Sports Radio 94.1. The Hall of Fame and Three Notch’d recently rolled out “Enshrined Pale Ale“, a collaboration beer celebrating the Hall of Fame Induction Weekend events.

Induction Weekend continued the following morning, April 22, with Breakfast with Champions, where attendees got to enjoy breakfast with the new inductees, and also participate in a Q&A, and autograph session. Finally, the weekend culminated with the Hall of Fame’s VIP Reception & Ceremony, where sponsors, friends, family, and supporters got to meet & mingle with the Class of 2023, and witness their formal induction into the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame.

The Hall is grateful to everyone who helped make the 2023 Induction Weekend a success, from our inductees both past and present in attendance, to our sponsors, event attendees, and volunteers. Below you will see photos and videos from the weekend events. Please be sure to save the date for 2024 Induction Weekend, April 19-20, 2024 as the Hall of Fame will celebrate the Class of 2024, and whatever you do, #ParticipateDontSpectate
