The rich sporting history of Penetanguishene and its athletic heroes is proudly displayed a new and separate 1700 sq. ft. museum/display area at the Penetanguishene Sports Hall of Fame in the Penetanguishene Memorial Arena.

Opened with much fanfare in October of 2007, the hall brings to life the sporting accomplishments of over 50 inductees: athletes, builders and teams that have been chosen from public nominations held every two years. Impressive displays and video tributes highlight a town’s rich sports heritage and heroes such as figure skater Brian Orser, Phil “Babe” Marchildon and Jean Thompson, to name a few. It highlights a small town’s sports heritage that is second to none!

The hall is manned by volunteers only and is open:

Fridays 3:00pm-9:00 pm

Saturdays and Sundays 2:00pm-8:00 pm
