The Atlantic Sun's Women’s Basketball Tournament began in 1986, with the winner of the tournament receiving the conference's automatic bid into the NCAA Women's Division I Basketball Championship.

The tournament is held each year at predetermined campus sites, a tradition which started with the inception of the women's tournament. From 2004-07, the tournament was played regularly at the Dothan Civic Center in Dothan, Alabama, though then-conference member Troy was the official host in 2004-05, and the city of Dothan was the host in 2006-07, after Troy had departed for the Sun Belt Conference. Starting in 2008, the tournament moved again, this time to Nashville, Tennessee, hosted by Lipscomb. In 2010, the tourney was moved to Macon, Georgia and has been hosted by Mercer University.
