Welcome to Intramural Sports! If you’re not into competitive varsity sports, you can still stay in shape and have fun by taking part in intramurals both on and off campus.

Healthy bodies are linked to healthy minds and regular participation in intramurals is a great way to improve your fitness. Don’t have prior experience playing any of these sports? Don’t worry! Our intramural program accepts students of all different skill levels, and will provide training and coaching to get you to an experienced level of play. And if you don’t find the intramural you’re looking for, we can help you start your own.

Pickleball play runs every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 am to 12 pm. Pickleball is a fun paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. It combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong and is played indoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net. Played with a wooden paddle and a plastic ball with holes. Can be played as doubles or singles.

Thinking about joining the Women’s Powderpuff Football team on campus? This is an all-women flag football team. Every year we train and raise money for Breast Cancer. We travel to Waterloo and get to compete against other universities. If you’re interested or have any questions contact Clarissa Seifarth (cseifarth@algomau.ca) or Whitney Nicholson (wnicholson@algomau.ca).
