Madison Sports Hall of Fame Club -

2020 Banquet has been canceled

The 58th Annual Madison Sports Hall of Fame Banquet, scheduled for September 2, 2020 has been canceled.  Due to COVID19 and the uncertainty of what phase of reopening we will be at and the overall safety of our guests, this year’s banquet has been canceled.  

The class of 2020 consists of professional golfer Jerry Kelly; sportswriter and UW Badger color commentator, Mike Lucas;  former Edgewood High School coach and Athletic Director, Joel Maturi; former Edgewood High School and University of Michigan runner, Molly McClimon-Watcke; and former LaFollette Softball and hockey player who went on to play both sports at Providence University, Sue Mussey-Kempf.

This outstanding class of Inductees will be inducted on June 2, 2021 at the Monona Terrace Convention Center.

This marks the first time in Club history that an induction banquet has been canceled.

All Luncheon Meetings have been canceled

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all of our lives this 2019-2020 Hall of Fame Club season. As a result of the Governor's extension of the “Safer at Home” order until May 26, 2020, all the remaining HOF weekly luncheons are canceled.

Please stay safe and keep healthy!
