hello, we are the UNIVERSITY OF ESSEX DODGEBALL club
Dodgeball is a competitive sport played with 5 balls and 6 players on each team. The objective is to eliminate the opposition players by throwing the balls at them. Catching a ball that is thrown at you means that the player who threw it is eliminated, and one of your previously eliminated teammates can come back into the game.
How many teams do we have?
Men's team (University South League)
Women's team (University South League)
Mixed team (Events and Tournaments)
We are one club and all train together!
