Teams are made up of 6 players with 5 balls in play and matches are played to either 8 or 15 minute halves with individual games lasting no more than 3 minutes. There are set court sizes per age group with the sport typically played indoors in a sports hall, but it can be adapted for outdoors or even the beach. You can even play while bouncing, thanks to the growing number of trampoline parks.
Dodgeball is a great all-round workout and some of key benefits include:
Wherever there’s space, some balls and some friends, a game of dodgeball can cost nothing!
Comfy clothes, trainers and some soft balls.
British Dodgeball is recognised as the National Governing Body for dodgeball in Great Britain and Northern Ireland (the UK) by the World Dodgeball Association and the European Dodgeball Federation. They offer support and services to the national teams, clubs, players, coaches and officials.
