From team practice to game day to a flurry of intramural sports, there's always action at Hennessey Recreation Center. The 32,000 square foot facility, built in 1985 and named in honor of Sister Mary Agnes Hennessey, is home court for Mount Mercy athletics.
Built into a hill on the northeast corner of campus, the recreation center offers practice facilities, a weight room, fully-equipped training room, and separate locker rooms for general use and those designated for the student-athletes in men's and women's sports.
At the heart of the Hennessey Recreation Center is the gymnasium with seating for 2,000 fans. In addition, Hennessey has a regulation-sized racquetball court, lounge and reception areas, a classroom/conference room, and the athletic department offices.
The recreation center is also open to the general public. To register for a yearly Hennessey membership, please contact the Mount Mercy athletic department at 319-363-8213 ext. 1376.
