IFK Nässjö is a sports club in the town of Nässjö in Sweden. It was established in 1924. The men's bandy team played in the 1944 qualifying rounds for the Swedish top division[1] before being disestablished in 1968.[2]

The women's bandy section was started in 2004 when it took over Nässjö IF's women's bandy team. The IFK Nässjö women's bandy team won the Swedish national championship in the year of 2009 and lost the national final in the years of 2008 and 2010. All three final games were played against AIK.[3] The U-17 girls bandy team also won the Swedish national championship during the seasons of 2004-2005 and 2005-2006.[4]

The club was appointed "IFK club of the year 2006" on 18 August 2007.[2]

The club announced its withdrawal from the Swedish women's bandy top division on 23 August 2011 because of lack of players.[5]
