Experience the heart of Iowa Basketball right here! Join the pre-game thrill at Hadley Club inside Carver Hawkeye Arena, kicking off 1.5 hours before tipoff. Check out the schedule for tailgate festivities and secure your spot by RSVPing to events@iowaswarm.com. Don’t miss out on the action!

Just like our football season, expect a monthly email at the beginning of each month with detailed tailgate plans. We’re lining up exciting events for you! Additionally, a week or two before each reception, watch out for a reminder email prompting you to RSVP and ensuring you don’t miss the upcoming festivities. Stay connected!

In light of limited capacity, RSVP invitation emails for basketball pre-game receptions will be sent out in priority order to the top 3 levels: Captain’s Club/Inside the Huddle group, All-Conference, and All-American. Following this, we’ll strive to accommodate champions and other membership tiers based on the availability for each specific game!
