Intramural Sports Leagues
University of Nottingham Sport run one of the largest intramural sports programmes (IMS) in the country with over 3,000 students taking part every year.
With several sports to choose from and all based right here on campus, IMS is an ideal way to stay active, meet new people and try something new.
We offer two IMS structures to get involved with:
- Societies and social sport - play for your course, e.g. Maths Soc, society, e.g. Tamil Soc or with a group of friends.
- Hall sport - play for your hall, e.g. Lenton and Wortley and win points towards the overall Halls' trophy! These leagues and competitions are open to all students currently living in University Halls of Residence.
Follow the links below to find all about the IMS programmes and how you can get involved!
Each year our top IMS teams will compete against the best teams from Loughborough University's intramural sport programme during the IMS Varsity event.
This year's IMS Varsity will take place in May in Loughborough.
Where can I buy official IMS kit?
With official partner Red Oak Roller we offer a range of official IMS kit for either your hall or society team.
The range includes T-shirts, shorts, skorts and socks.
