Candace Parker explains the significance of Aces’ first-of-its-kind headquarters

The Aces brought the first-ever major professional sports championship to the city of Las Vegas in 2022 when they took home the WNBA title. Now the team is doubling down on their efforts to provide a state-of-the-art environment for their players. For the first time in WNBA history, a facility was built solely to house a WNBA team.

The Aces unveiled the facility on Friday and it boasts:

  • Training Facility

  • Cold & Hot Plunge Pools

  • HydroWorx

  • Infrared Sauna

  • Cryo Chamber

  • Nutrition Bar

  • Film Room

Now this might seem like something standard for professional athletes, but in the world of professional women’s sports, it’s not as common as you would imagine. WNBA superstar Candace Parker explained the significance of the facility to NBA player Draymond Green.

Parker now has not only a dedicated locker room, but a state-of-the-art facility to practice and hone her craft. She finally has a facility that is worthy of her talent, time and experience. As the league continues to grow, hopefully, more teams are able to provide the same level of training facility to their players.
