Hall sport

There's a great competitive spirit in our halls and you have the chance to help your hall take the badminton title.

Hall sport (also known as IMS), is a free programme and a great way to enjoy sport, socialise with friends and get the most out of your hall experience. 

The programme is open to all Loughborough University students so whether you are currently living in halls or are affiliated with one, you can get involved.
