We're delighted to welcome Dodgeball and the UK Dodgeball Association (UKDBA) to the School Games family. Speaking about the announcement, UKDBA have said:
"Dodgeball is an exciting team sport with many health, wellbeing and social benefits, which appeals to all age groups. Dodgeball is an extremely inclusive sport, very simple to learn and every child from as young as pre-school has the ability to get involved.
"Being a part of the School Games will enable a pathway to exist in Dodgeball through school competition for the first time. If you’re looking for a sport that aids agility, balance and coordination whilst at the same time develops tactics such as fairness and respect then give Dodgeball a go."
We will be making more announcements regarding new sports formats over the coming days.
