Dodge Ball

  • Type: Team game
  • Equipment: Two or more large balls.

The aim is to dismiss as many of the opposing team as possible within a given time. The time can vary, but each game takes from about 10 to 15 minutes. About 15 on each side is ideal.


  1. Players have allocated areas, indicated by rope or chalk lines. They must not go outside these areas.
  2. Two players from each team stand in tramlines behind the opposing team (see diagram).
  3. Two balls are thrown into the main area. The players throw over the heads of their opponents to those of their number behind the line.
  4. The two try to hit their opponents below the knee.
  5. If hit below the knee, players join their team mates behind the line, and try to get their opponents out.
  6. Balls may be interrupted as they are thrown over the opposing team.
  7. If any player crosses a line unlawfully a free pass is awarded to the other team.
  8. The game may continue until everyone is out, on one side or the other.
