Dodgeball is a sport which has been growing in popularity over the last few years and this hasn’t been missed at the University of Hertfordshire.
Dodgeball is a young, engaging and fast-growing sport. It’s the ideal mix of team strategy and individual performance. I enjoy dodgeball as it doesn’t use one specific skill, allowing individuals to thrive in their own area whilst playing a vital role in the team. You can be a thrower and make crucial hits, or you can be taking catches and saving teammates, or you can be the agile dodger who is key in keeping the group alive. It’s not the ‘norm’ sport to play, so I believe it encourages a broader audience because it is so inclusive.
'The Stags' welcome players of all ability levels, and there are opportunities for people wanting to play recreationally as well as those who wish to compete in tournaments throughout the year.
The club takes part in a variety of competitions including local open tournaments, University Championships, Regional & National Championships.
There are two weeks of free trials and taster sessions following Freshers' Week (Monday 4th October - Sunday 17th October).
Anyone invited to join the Club must have signed up and paid for their membership following this three-week period.
Please pre-register at the HertSquad Sports Fair (Wednesday 29th September) or by contacting the Club on their social media channels.
The Dodgeball Club self-coach themselves via members who hold UK Dodgeball Association coaching qualifications.
