A WNBA player typically stands between 5 feet 11 inches and 6 feet tall. This is based on WNBA research from 2003. WBNA athletes are typically 7 inches shorter than NBA athletes.
One of the tallest WNBA players currently is Brittney Griner. She is also one of the few players in the WNBA to have dunk, which could suggest a connection between height and the ability to do so. When compared to male players of a similar height, though, there aren’t as many dunks in women’s basketball. Studies claim that women are less likely than men to be able to jump vertically, which could explain the disparity.
