Alumni Memorial Gymnasium is a building on the East Campus of Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, that opened in 1923. A 31,000 square foot addition to the facility, featuring a pool, indoor track, basketball courts, and aerobics and weight rooms, named the Keith and Brenda Brodie Recreation Center, was completed in 1996.[1]

Opened in 1923, the gymnasium was home to the Duke Blue Devils men's basketball team, from 1924 to 1930. There was room for 1,400 fans downstairs and 600 spectators on the upstairs balcony for basketball games. The basketball team moved into Card Gymnasium in 1930.[2]
