NOTTINGHAM & NTU INTRAMURAL SUPER LEAGE
Date: July 2023
The University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University's Intra Mural Super League was developed out of a necessity to satisfy the rugby playing needs of all students who have had a previous experience of playing rugby or wished to explore a new sport.
The programme was developed as a partnership between NTU and UoN Sport and has led a to better fostering of relationships between the two universities. The 12-team league is played over 20 weeks with over 250 students signed up in addition to the 200 players involved in the University of Nottingham Rugby Union Club (UNRUC), and the programme prides itself in upholding the RFUs Core Values.
The SRFU grant enabled the programme to cover additional costs of transport to the venues, with both club and university pitches are used. The cost of providing kit and equipment and the ever-increasing cost of playing some of the matches under lights.
