SEC Women's Basketball Returns to the "Basketball Capital of the South"



Greenville welcomes the SEC Women's Basketball Tournament back in March 2020! The Bon Secours Wellness Arena (650 N Academy Street) will be home to all the SEC action as the teams square off for the 2020 title and their place in the NCAA Tournament. 

With an award-winning downtown ranked one of "America's Best Downtowns" by Forbes, Greenville's tree-lined Main Street has boutiques, craft coffee shops, galleries, and public installations - not to mention a picturesque park with the one-of-a-kind Liberty Bridge overlooking 40-foot waterfalls. Walk to 110+ inventive restaurants ranging from traditional to global to downright eclectic (it's no wonder why Greenville was named on Travel + Leisure's list of "Top 20 America's Favorite Cities for Food")...what are you waiting for? Book your tickets today!
