If you are talking about WNBA, it was invented in 1994 or 1996. Im pretty sure it was 1994.

Men's basketball was introduced in 1904 but not played again until 1936. It has been played in every Summer Olympic Games since 1936. Women's basketball was introduced at the 1976 Summer Games.

in the year 1978 women were ushered into basketball mania. The women's basketball uniforms looked like men's uniforms to a great stretch, although jerseys were much smaller, and special undergarments like sports bras were added. There was a period when women wore short sleeves and skirts when playing b-ball.

The NCAA introduced the first women's basketball in 1984 which was one inch smaller than a regulation men's ball. The wonam's ball was 28.5 compared to the 29.5 men's ball. The WNBA did not begin until 1997 however, so the first WNBA game was played with an official 28.5 women's basketball.

Springfield College, in Springfield, Massachusetts, is world renowned as the Birthplace of Basketball. In 1891, James Naismith was challenged to invent a game that could be played indoors during wintertime. He borrowed elements of lacrosse, rugby, soccer, and a Canadian game he played as a boy called "duck on a rock" to create "basketball." The sport was quickly embraced by both men and women; within the same year, women began playing basketball at the YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. By the end of 1891, the game had been introduced in Mexico; by the end of the century, basketball had spread to such countries as China, India, Czechoslovakia, Lebanon, England, France and Japan. Today, basketball is part of our culture and has grown to become one of the world's most popular sports. The game in played by men and women of all backgrounds, ages, and abilities - from professional athletes to schoolchildren.
