St Mary’s has the throwing edge to become this year’s Dodgeball Champions!

The Workplace Health Dodgeball Tournament was run on Wednesday 24th October, by four volunteers at Hinckley Revolution Dodgeball Club. It was the second tournament of this year's Workplace Health season, following volleyball last month.

Each team played each other twice in games of 5 people per squad, during heats of 2-minute games (those who won the majority of games won the points).

Competing teams:

  • Ashmount School
  • Leicestershire County Cricket Club (LCCC)
  • St. Mary's Primary (in Hinckley)

It was a tight finish between LCCC and St. Mary's, with 9 points each at the end of the competition. The result could only be determined by the number of people 'out' after all games played. St. Mary's thrown 29 out to LCCC's 28, making it go right to the wire!

Final result:

1st St Mary's

2nd LCCC

3rd Ashmount School

A good effort to all teams who took part on the night, and a special thanks to all volunteers and Hinckley Revolution Dodgeball Club for their assistance and hospitality.

The next competitions will give you all little bit of a breather, leaving you until Jan/Feb to prepare for the Wheelchair Basketball and Football!
