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 either hitting them with a thrown dodgeball or catching one of their throws, 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.
Membership costs only £15 for the 18/19 academic year - this covers the cost of all training and coaching for the whole year!
You can purchase this by clicking on 'Add to Basket' on the right hand side of this page on computers, or at the bottom of the page on some mobile devices.

We are a successful club, with our Men's A team the University Premier League 2016/17 CHAMPIONS. In the 2017/18 league season, the Men's As finished 1st and the Women's As 2nd in the East Midlands University League. Both teams competed in the National University Finals on April 29th, with our Men's team placing 3rd and our Women's team being officially ranked the 2nd best team in the country!
We have four teams competing in leagues, and enter lots of teams into tournaments too, such as the recent Nottingham Open. For more information on British Dodgeball or their competitions, 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 4 years! The next varsity dodgeball fixture will be around May 2019.
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!
Intramural Sport (IMS) is a competition that we run twice a year that allows students who aren't apart of the club or friends of those that are, to join together and compete in a one day tournament! It's the perfect way to enjoy competitive sport and make new friends right here on campus. This year our IMS tournaments are on November 18th and March 10th, keep the dates saved!
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.
