John C. Foley Gymnasium

   

John C. Foley Gymnasium is the home of PSU's men's and women's basketball and volleyball teams. The spacious, 1,600-seat gymnasium has LED scoreboards at both ends, and two elevated press boxes, including accommodations for a television crew for live broadcasts. Foley Gym hosts NHIAA Basketball and Volleyball Tournament contests as well as many other university and community assemblies, such as convocation, high school concerts and graduations, etc.

The facility is named after one of the legendary figures at Plymouth State. John C. Foley enjoyed a career that spanned 30 years, including roles as an English professor, university basketball and baseball coach, chair of the Athletic Department and dean of instruction, before moving on to become dean of the College. The Conning Tower, PSU's yearbook, was dedicated to Foley three times. In 1981, he was voted into the Athletic Hall of Fame at Saint Anselm, his alma mater. An inspiring teacher and influential coach, Foley retired from PSU in 1977-78.
