The women's 3 metre springboard, also reported as fancy diving, was one of four diving events on the diving at the 1928 Summer Olympics programme. The competition was actually held from both 3 metre and 1 metre boards. Divers performed three compulsory dives from the 3 metre board – running plain header forward, standing backward header, backward spring and forward dive – and three dives of the competitor's choice (different from the compulsory), from either board, for a total of six dives. The competition was held on Thursday August 9, 1928.
Ten divers from four nations competed.
Since there were only ten entries for this event, instead of groups, a direct final was contested.
