What is dodgeball?

Dodgeball London

Dodgeball is a team-based fast-paced sport that requires quick reflexes, agility, speed and hand-eye coordination. If you can dodge, dip, duck, dive and dodge, this is the game for you.

Did you know that it used to be played with rocks?

Yep this is true! Dodgeball was originally played in Africa over a couple of centuries ago, but back then it was a pretty violent game! It was played was large rocks. Each competitor would attempt to hit their opponent with their rock to hurt them!

Now it’s played with rubber balls and you can’t hit people in the face!

At the beginning of the game, six rubber balls are placed in the middle of the court. Two teams of eight will rush towards the middle to collect the balls, before attempting to eliminating their opponents by hitting them with the ball below the shoulder. If they’re hit, they’re out. However if they catch the ball, the person who threw the ball is out. It’s frantic, furious fun. Check out the full rules.
