Dodge. Dip. Duck. Dive. Dodge.
When I got a text a few weeks ago from my friend Char asking if Tom and I wanted to join their dodgeball team, my first thought was ‘hell yeah’.
My second thought was, ‘what if I get hit in the face and cry?’ Of course we then watched the film for research- such a brilliant movie.
The tournament that we’re in has been going for 3 weeks already, but yesterday was the first time that Tom and I could play. The team was made up of a number of Char and Nick’s friends, most of whom we hadn’t met before. It was lovely to meet some new people, although there wasn’t much time for chatting. Our team actually had far more players than needed, with 15 of us and only 8 people able to play at once, 3 of whom had to be girls, so we were able to have rolling subs. Our team colours were black/grey- I think we need matching t-shirts like the team on before us!

Oh and we won! It was really close and came down to the final game but we won 2 sets to 1!
