Loughborough secured victory over Nottingham at this year’s IMS Varsity

On 8 May, Loughborough’s Intramural Sports (IMS) teams took on Nottingham University in a range of games across campus for the annual varsity battle, with Loughborough claiming their third consecutive title.

The event was a fantastic display of talent, determination, and sportsmanship from both sides, and we extend our gratitude to Nottingham for joining us in this exciting competition. Nottingham’s dedication and spirit contributed to making this event truly memorable. 

Sports played on the day included volleyball, badminton, hockey, tennis, rugby and many more.

IMS Varsity is not just about winning; it’s about friendly competition, positive student experiences and a sense of community with other universities.
