Important Information

  1. To participate in Intramural Sports, a UI Student, Faculty, Staff or Affiliate must purchase an Intramural Sports Membership. This $20.00/semester membership allows you to participate in almost any Intramural sport/event that semester. There is no cost to register a team, but team members must purchase the Intramural Sports Membership before joining/creating a team. Directions on how to purchase an Intramural Sports Membership can be found here.
  2. There is no limit to the size of a team’s roster. However, a team must have three players (two males and one female or one male and two females) on the roster to complete registration.
  3. Teams may add players to the roster up until a scheduled match time. Rosters will become locked for the rest of the tournament at the roster addition deadline of the quarterfinal round.
  4. Before each match, all players must present a valid UI or government-issued photo ID to participate.
  5. Teams may participate with a maximum of two males and two females on the court, but must have at least three players present to start the match (two males and one female or one female and two males).
  6. Substitutions can only be made at the serving position. Once a substitute enters the match, he/she must rotate through every position before substituting out for another player.
  7. The ball must always be returned over the net by the third contact, unless a block is the initial contact in which case the ball must be returned by the fourth contact.
  8. Any forfeit/no-show will result in a Forfeit Fine of $50.00. This fine is charged to the University Bill of the team captain.
