Do you love to play sports but don’t have the time to commit to a club or university team? If so, intramural sports are a great alternative for you! UNH offers over 20 different types of intramurals, including traditional games such as soccer, flag football, and field hockey and some rather untraditional sports like broomball or wheelchair ultimate Frisbee. Virtually anyone can play: undergraduate, graduates, faculty, and staff members. The only extra qualification for employees is that you must be a member of the Hamel Rec Center. More information for employee memberships and benefits can be found at this link. Currently there are signups for tournaments such as inner tube basketball and ice hockey. Spring signups are also open from now until the beginning of the New Year, so there’s plenty of time to decide.
Tournaments and teams like these are a great way to incorporate some extra physical activity in your schedule. Games usually take place during the evening or nighttime since this time usually accommodates everyone’s schedules. To get more information of the times and types of teams you can join, visit the UNH Intramural site. Whether you sign up for a spring sport or a tournament, playing on a team helps encourage you to stick to your goals and also provides you with a great social aspect. Since these are low-pressure games, there is nothing to loose. Put yourself out there and get a team together!
