Dodgeball does pretty much what it says on the tin – dodge the balls and try to stay in! The UK rules see two teams of six play against each other for 3 minutes, or until a team is completely out. Five cloth-coated balls are thrown by the players. If a throw is caught, the catcher is out and the catcher’s team gets to bring a player back in. For full details of the rules, click here.
Why get involved with London Storm?
We’re a friendly bunch, who play for fun as well competition. You don’t need to be particularly sporty or have any previous experience – we’re happy to teach anyone! Whether you come once a year or every week, you’ll be given the same opportunities within the club and welcomed to every event. Our sessions include regular matches and games, as well as our last-person-standing league which gives you the chance to win a free session!
How do I join?
Come along to any Thursday session (ARK All Saints Academy, not far from Oval tube, 7-9pm) and see what it’s like! All sessions are for mixed-ability players so you’ll be able to slot right in!
If you’d like to meet us before coming to a session, feel free to come to any upcoming social or we go the pub after our sessions if you want to pop down and say hi!
What do I need to bring?
Just yourself and some sports kit! There are changing facilities on site if you have to come straight from work.
How much does it cost?
We operate a first session free policy so any new players can get a feel for the sport for free. Sessions after that are £5 each, with occasional free sessions for members or promotions.
