Simple fun episode 3: Dodgeball

Do you want to have fun, but you don’t have a lot of “sports stuff” lying around? In these series, we will present you games that can be played with just some friends and, this time, three balls. Because exercise needs to be fun and simple!

Dodgeball, a sport mostly popular in The United States, is a simple and fun game.
You need:
  • at least three balls (volleyballs work best, or any type of ball that does not hurt when you get hit by it)  
  • some sort of court – tennis, basketball, handball, volleyball   
  • at least 4 people - but the more, the better  

Step 1: Choose two teams, based on any method you like. Make sure they are of equal size (or as close as possible). 

Step 2: Place the balls on the middle line of the court, at a similar distance from one another, with teams at the opposite ends of the court.

Step 3: At the count of three, run and pick up the balls. If you got to pick up a ball, throw it towards the opposite team (but don’t aim for the head!) If you didn’t pick up a ball, RUN! Try not to get hit by the other team.

Step 4: If you get hit by an incoming ball, you are out. If you see a ball loose in your side of the court, try and pick it up, but be careful not to get hit by the opponents. If a ball falls out of the court, you can go after it, but you can’t use it unless you are back in your court. Keep playing, trying to pick up balls and hitting the other players. The team with no players left loses. 

Note: if you are holding a ball, and you see another ball flying towards you, you can use your ball to block the incoming ball, but be careful not to get hit!
