Vanderbilt University employees and their families are invited to cheer on the Vanderbilt women’s basketball team as they take on the Arkansas Razorbacks Sunday, Feb. 25. The free Employee Appreciation event begins with a Fan Fest at 12:30 p.m. in the Memorial Practice Gym followed by the game at 2 p.m. The Fan Fest will feature basketball shooting games, inflatables and other fun activities for kids of all ages.

Registration for the Employee Appreciation Womens Basketball game is between Feb. 1 and Feb. 20. Please register, even if you plan to attend the pre-game event only.

Game tickets are free but must be reserved in advance. 

Tickets can be picked up at the practice gym beginning at 12:30 p.m. on Feb. 25 only; there is no early pickup. All game attendees, regardless of age, must have a ticket to enter the gym. Once you receive your tickets, you are not permitted to leave and re-enter the gym. You’ll need to show your VU ID to pick up tickets and wear black and gold. Free tickets will not be given to anyone wearing cardinal red apparel or the Arkansas Razorbacks logo.

Any unclaimed tickets to the game will be handed out on a first-come, first-served basis at the pregame Fan Fest beginning at 1:50 p.m.

Due to an increase in security at all public venues, Memorial Gymnasium now specifically prohibits backpacks and discourages other large bags and items. No bags or purses larger than 8.5" x 11" are allowed inside the facility.

Parking for the event is available in the lots at the corner of Natchez Trace and Jess Neely Drive, or you may park in your normal parking location.
