Sportsmanship is a priority of the Intramural Sports Program at The University of Iowa. More information on Sportsmanship, including the detailed ratings system, can be found in the Intramural Sports Rules and Regulations.

To participate in Intramural Table Tennis, a UI Student, Faculty, Staff or Affiliate must purchase an Intramural Sports Semester Membership, an Intramural Sports Year-Long Membership (good through Spring 2019), or a One-Day Tournament Pass.
