The intramural program at Vanderbilt includes more than 40 sports ranging from basketball to inner tube water polo. Leagues are available in men’s, women’s, and co-recreational divisions. Competitive and recreation divisions are formed to meet the desired skill or interest level of the participants. All registration is done through the Office of Campus Recreation (OCR).

Skill levels are offered when the number of entries allows more than one division to be formed.  These skill levels are created to promote equitable competition for the participants.

Open A – Highly Skilled
Open B – Intermediate
Open C – Beginner/Novice
