Urban Athletics: Dodgeball for Grownups (Co-ed)

  • This location is shown only to members

What day is today? Why, it's bring the pain Friday! Well, not really. It's a special Wednesday/Labor Day edition of dodgeball. Let's go and bruise up our fellow men and women as a show of appreciaton for all the hardworking people who've labored to build America into the great country that is is.  It is once again time for us to ... Dodge. The. Ball.

If you don't know, now you know ...

If you've never played the game of dodgeball as a kid you must have grown up on Mars. But as a quick primer, it's a game in which players on two teams throw large balls at each other while avoiding being hit themselves. That's it. And no athletic skill is necessary!

If you haven't played the game in 20 years, here are the general rules we will be using with a few modifications: Dodgeball Rules

A $3.00 organization fee will be collected at this event, your host is in the running for hardest working person on meetup.

The important stuff ...

• This is a co-ed game so ladies don't be shy to sign up. And it doesn't matter if you have no athletic ability, you just have to be willing to have a little fun.

• Dress for physical activity! You'll be dodging and running so wear your sneaks, shorts and a t-shirt.

• Rain or similar un-favorable weather cancels the meetup. Not!

• Check the meetup site before leaving for last minute updates as well as my mobile phone number.

• Please DO NOT RSVP if you do not seriously plan to attend as space is limited. No flakes allowed! If you RSVP and I notice that you have a number of no shows or have a history of last minute cancellations, you will be removed.

• Sorry, no guests allowed for this one.

    People, it's a beautiful day for a dodgeball game. Please be ON TIME so we can get the game going, bring WATER because it is very warm out today, and have small bills for the meetup fee. Let's get it on!

    Hey guys! I guess I've grown up in Mars (Peru) as I've never played this game. It seems really fun I 'd like to give it a try. I already memorized the rules but do not know if it is ok to have a super beginner in your team.

      Jorge, no worries. There are no professional dodgeball players here, all skill levels are welcome.

    Sorry to cancel last minute I was looking forward to attending but I have to work.

    Ballers, if you are not 100% sure of your attendance for this game, please change your RSVP to NOT ATTENDING now. No shows don't fly for my events, especially games where we need enough people for teams. No shows will be blacklisted from attending my future events and you really don't want to miss out on the fun. Thanks.
