What are Intramural Sports?

I got a request to write an article about intramural sports, so I’m going to try and answer some questions that people might have about intramural sports.

How are intramural sports different from regular sports?

Intramural Sports are mostly free, anyone can join, and less of a time commitment than team sports at Monmouth College. They also take place on the Monmouth College campus for the most part. You still get to meet people, work together, and compete in intramural sports, but you don’t have practice all week or worry about away games.

What intramural sports are offered?

Here are some of the sports that were offered last year:

  • Flag Football
  • 4-on-4 Sand Volleyball
  • Ultimate Frisbee
  • Badminton (Singles and Doubles)
  • Basketball
  • Floor Hockey
  • Wrestling
  • Ping Pong
  • Co-ed Volleyball

There were also some one day/night tournaments in these sports:

  • Frisbee Golf
  • Bowling
  • 3-on-3 Basketball
  • 4-on-4 Co-ed Volleyball
  • 4 on 4 Indoor Soccer
  • 3 Point Shoot-Out
  • Bags Tournament
  • Scot’s Day Co-ed Softball

What if I want to play a sport that isn’t offered currently in intramurals?

You can request that an intramural group be formed for the sport. Badminton is relatively new to intramural sports at Monmouth College, so it will be interesting to see what new sports crop up this year!
