Boyd Gymnasium evokes fond memories for Pace alumni who remember the days prior to 2000 when the gym was home to varsity basketball and volleyball. Although varsity competitions are now held in the Inman Center, Boyd Gym remains an important fixture for Pace Athletics and physical education. The Booster Club and Parents Club recently partnered to renovate the gym’s playing surface and windows. These updates make Boyd Gym a fantastic venue for Middle School games and practices for both our Middle and Upper School teams.
