If I want to play sports on campus, are there any facilities available?

Absolutely, IITM's sporting infrastructure is pretty fantastic. Students can play the sport of their choice in:

  • The Olympic-size swimming pool
  • The fully-equipped gym with professional trainers
  • The weightlifting arena
  • The large IIT-Chemplast cricket ground
  • The K.S Narayanan Centre for Cricketing Excellence
  • The massive stadium
  • The high-tech wood-floored multipurpose indoor stadium
  • The athletics stadium
  • Four synthetic floored tennis courts and wood-floored badminton courts
  • Two world-class squash courts
  • Two basketball courts and two volleyball courts
  • The hockey & football fields
  • The table tennis facility
  • The skating rink

The sports culture here is so strong that we host a competitive inter-hostel sports competition called Schroeter, which is widely attended. We also have strong teams at the yearly inter-IIT sports meet in which we're proud to say that IITM has the leading number of wins! Limber up and let's go.
