Both varsity and intramural athletics are popular at TCU. Football is the most popular sport on campus; basketball's a distant second, and most others trail by a significant margin. Students enjoy supporting the varsity teams, especially when they are winning.
While football seems to dominate the athletic scene, Intramural sports allow athletes to compete in a wide array of sports at a variety of diferent competitive levels. With options ranging from inner tube water polo to sand volleyball, IM sports provide a variety of interesting and new athletic experiences for students-with a bit of time and money to spare. Intramural sports are offered in a variety of areas, with annual competitions and a fair amount of participation. The seven athletic facilities provide more than enough space for student athletes, and TCU is constantly building additional facilities for other sports.
