“For Dodgeball to be recognised nationally as the sport for all” Dodgeball is an exciting team sport that appeals to all age groups, genders, backgrounds and ethnicities. The UK Dodgeball Association is the officially recognised National Governing Body of Dodgeball, since 2012. The association is responsible for promoting, organising and developing Dodgeball in the UK from ‘grass roots’ to the elite level.
We believe that there are many health, wellbeing, economic and social benefits to playing sport and every person should be afforded the opportunity to do so. Everyone from children as young as pre-school up to adults of retirement age and beyond can play Dodgeball. It is very simple to learn and everyone has the ability to get involved as part of a team.
Through education and training, support and expertise we aim to ensure there is an excellent participation environment for players at schools, colleges, universities and clubs in the community. We believe that dodgeball is an extremely inclusive sport and that it creates an opportunity for all sporting abilities.
We are now, more than ever before, able to support all four home countries to develop not only at home but as part of the ever expanding international game. Our determination to succeed has seen the UKDBA quickly become the internationally leading governing body and model for Dodgeball development around the world.
