Drop in and have a ball

For most people Tuesday nights are about relaxing and recharging for the rest of the working week, but for a select few it’s the perfect time for a game of dodgeball at the Hobart PCYC.

Drop in Dodgeball organiser Desmond Onwumere said although the games were designed to be friendly sometimes a competitive edge could sneak in from some players.

“Even though the scores don’t matter if someone hits you with a good throw there is a strong desire to get them back,” he said.

“Our numbers are pretty good and we get about 20 to 25 players a week with new players joining on a regular basis.

“Although this sport can be great for your physical fitness the social aspect and having fun is more important to us.

“Anyone is welcome to come and join us. 16 is the minimum age but we’ve had people up to the age of 50 join us and have a really good time.”

Games run from 7:30pm to 8:30pm every Tuesday night.

“If you want to have a fun time and listen to good music while throwing stuff at your friends this is the place to be,” Mr Onwumere said.
