Sports and Recreation

There’s nothing like a little friendly competition and physical activity to keep your heart pumping and your mind stimulated. But you don’t have to play on one of Ball State’s tough-as-nails Division I teams to compete and stay fit. Ball State has plenty of other opportunities for sweaty—and maybe not-so-sweaty—competition and recreation.

Intramural Sports


Get a little competitive without taking it too seriously. Intramural sports are a great way to get active and have some fun. Recreation Services  offers intramural golf, volleyball, softball, and other sports.



Sport Clubs


Whether you’re looking to join a team, such as baseball, or compete on an individual level, such as martial arts, sport clubs are great ways to share common interests and get competitive in a structured way. If you don’t see something you like on our list, new clubs can be formed at any time.



Fitness Programs


Relax after a night of studying, drop a few pounds, condition your heart, or even find muscles you didn’t know you had. Whatever your reason, we have something for you. Our fitness programs offer a variety of challenging group exercise classes for all fitness levels. From hip hop to Pilates, the latest exercise classes are taught at various times throughout the day. Check out a class schedule.



Instructional Recreation
