Hall sport (IMS)

Also called intramural sport (IMS), this is a free programme open to every Loughborough University student. It’s a fantastic way to make friends and compete in a range of sports that will ensure you get the most out of your hall experience.

IMS is comprised of leagues and a series of one day events. Every week there are 90 league fixtures and over the course of each year we host 20 one day events.

The programme is not just for first year students as any student can affiliate to a hall to participate in IMS. This year long battle between halls culminates with the IMS Awards where the university’s best kept secret, the winners of IMS, finally gets revealed.

How it works

Each Hall of Residence will enter a team into every league and one day event across the year. Points are awarded based on the grading of the sport and the position the hall finishes. The hall that has the most points at the end of the year is crowned the overall winner at the IMS presentation evening. Different sports are graded to be worth different amounts of points, see the dates for IMS events here.
