As one of the most popular programs on campus, IM gives literally everyone the opportunity to play–even faculty, staff, and their spouses. Participants can form their own team and play with friends or sign up as a free agent and make some new ones.
A history professor tennis league? College dean flag football tournament? Husbands versus wives pickleball? Creswell 4th floor against 5th floor ultimate frisbee? The possibilities are endless.
Dozens of sports are offered each semester, including ESports, which has spiked in popularity over the past several years.
IM is housed within UGA’s Recreational Sports Department, but don’t let the recreational nature fool you, the games get competitive. Stakes are high when championship games are held on legendary UGA stages like Sanford Stadium and Stegeman Coliseum. But win or lose, the goal of the program is safe, inclusive fun.
“This is one of the coolest experiences I’ve had at UGA so far,” says Trent Nesbit, a third-year business major said after his team won the fall 2022 IM Flag Football Championship in their category. ” Especially tonight, playing here in Sanford.”
