Welcome to the University of Nottingham Dodgeball Club!
We have a friendly inclusive atmosphere, competitive men's and women's teams, and a range of fun socials!
About | Welcome 2017 | Membership | Training | Competitions | Socials | Contact Us
Dodgeball is one of the fastest growing sports, with over 100 clubs operating across the UK. The games are fast paced and high intensity, but accessible to all, with players across the country varying in age and skill level - from complete beginners to international players!
The aim of the game is to eliminate your opponents by hitting them, whilst dodging any incoming attacks yourself. It is a sport that truly emphasises teamwork, fast thinking and adaptation
We pride ourselves on not only our sporting excellence, but most importantly our inclusitivity. We welcome all members to our club whether you want to play competitively or just want to turn up to socials - there are no trials! You choose how involved you get with the club, but we do encourage people to get involved as much as possible to fully experience dodgeball at UoN.
You can find us at the Welcome Fair on Monday 25th September and Tuesday 26th September 10am-5pm at David Ross Sports Village. For more details visit: www.facebook.com/events/707857432758057.

We will be holding taster sessions on the 2nd, 5th and 7th of October for anyone who would like to try out the sport.

We are a successful club, with our Men's A team the current University Premier League CHAMPIONS. We also claimed gold in the Men's University Open, and the Women's Uni Spring Open.
For the 17/18 season, our men's and women's A and B teams will be competing in the British Dodgeball East Midlands University League. For more information on British Dodgeball or their leagues, visit: http://britishdodgeball.org.
We also take part in the annual Nottingham Varsity Series against Nottingham Trent University which draws crowds of thousands to venues across Nottingham! We have a 100% win record at varsity, winning for the past 3 years!
There will be oppurtunities for all members to compete in leagues and tournaments throughout the year, however this is not compulsory if you want to only play socially - it's completley up to you!
We hold a variety of regular socials throughout the year. There is something for everyone, and coming to socials is the best way to truly get to know your dodgeball family! Our members are very welcoming so don't be scared to join us, but if you do feel nervous don't hesitate to talk to or message our friendly social secs, or any other member of committee. We want to do what we can to help you feel comfortable and involved.
Social activities include: pub quizzes, movie nights, bowling, laser quest, nights out, and games nights. We also hold an annual Christmas Meal, which is one of the best evenings of the year, and an excuse to get all dressed up! Similarily, we hold a Summer Meal at the end of the year, where we give out the end of year awards.
Not only will you get to know our current members, but you will also meet the dodgeball alumni, at the annual Alumni Sports Challenge. It's a great weekend where you can test your skills against some highly experienced players, and meet your extended dodgeball family.
