Gonzalez Convention Center Exhibit Hall A. Pre-registration is recommended at the 2010 NCAA Women's Final Four Web site.

Inside Tourney Town spectators will enjoy live music and a deejay hosting fan activities. Basketball courts are adjacent to both stages for youth clinics, open play and deejay hosted games. Fans can choose from a wide variety of concessions, merchandise, roving entertainment, live and pre-recored video programming, and live musical performances by local, regional and national talent.
