Important Information

  1. To participate in Intramural Sports, a UI Student, Faculty, Staff or Affiliate must purchase an Intramural Sports Membership. Information on how to purchase a membership can be found here. This $20.00/semester membership allows you to participate in almost any Intramural sport/event that semester. 
  2. Matches will be best 2-out-of-3 sets. Sets will be played first to six games, with the winner needing to win by two (Ex: 6-4). If a set is tied 6-6, a tiebreaker to seven points will be used.
  3. Matches must be scheduled by the individuals. Contact information for all players will be distributed. The match must be played, and the participants shall report the score by the "play-by" deadline via email. Failure to do so will result in a double forfeit, and Forfeit Fines assessed.
  4. Registration includes a can of tennis balls to be picked up at the first round match by each competitor. Only one new can should be used in each match. The winner will get the unused can of tennis balls to advance to the next match, and the player not advancing will keep the balls that were used.
  5. Failure to complete the match and report the score by the “play-by” deadline will result in a Forfeit Fine of $25.00.
  6. Teams can compete in the year-long Intramural Sports Points Championship presented by Coach's Corner for a chance to win awesome prizes. For details on the Intramural Sports Points Championship presented by Coach's Corner, click here.
  7. Each competing organization is allowed two entries to accumulate points in the Intramural Sports Points Championship presented by Coach’s Corner, but there is no maximum on the amount of participants that can register for an organization. The top two finishers for each organization will be counted towards the point total. Individuals must designate their team affiliations before the event begins.
  8. Matches will be self-officiated by participants. If an issue should arise that cannot be settled, the point shall be replayed. All participants are expected to know the rules, which can be found by clicking the "Rules" link at the top of this page.
