Dodge, Dip, Duck, Dive and Dodge!
Dodgeball is a terrible sport. It preys on the weaker members of a group, encourages bullying and was phased out of schools nationwide as a result. Luckily for you, we couldn't give a crying wimp's nuts about any of that sissyness. As a result of sterling performances by Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller in the 2004 comedy hit "Dodgeball", the sport for real men is back in force.
The object of the game is to eliminate all opposing players by getting them "OUT". This may be done by:
- Hitting an opposing player with a LIVE (hasn't been deflected off another person/surface) thrown ball below the shoulders.
- Catching a LIVE ball thrown by your opponent before it touches the ground.
There are lots of other rules including the initial "rush" for the balls, boundary lines etc... but these are all pretty simple and will be explained in full on the day.
Teams and Matches:
Dodgeball normally has teams of 6, although this can be flexible dependent on numbers. Teams can be mixed about in a 2 hour session if requested. The session will normally be run as a round-robin league with a grand final, dependant on number of teams. Matches are best of three sets, and each set is a maximum of 4 minutes long. In the event of a draw at the end of the third set, a shoot-out occurs. Teams win by either knocking out all their opposition, or having more players left at the end of the time.
