Dodge, duck, dip, dive and dodge throughout the year with dodgeball. It is a fast-paced, exciting game and a very easy sport to pick up and learn - all you have to do is throw the ball and don't get hit. And don't worry, it doesn't hurt as much as it looks like, the balls are soft.
The cheapest sports club at NTU welcomes you all! For just £10 a year you can enjoy sessions twice a week, weekly socials along with other events such as our Charity UV dodge day.
We are proud to announce that in the 2018/19 year, we have been able to field both female and male teams in the league system in which we compete against other Universities in our region.
We are a highly social team that engages in many skill swaps with other societies – secretly because they all want to play Dodgeball and are jealous of course. This gives a unique opportunity to meet a wide variety of people across NTU.
I have been playing dodgeball at NTU for 2 years and been involved in the second team throughout this time, including being captain for the 2nd team last year. I only joined dodgeball for the play for fun as one of my flatmates encouraged me to come along. However, it was such an easy sport to pick up that I ended up staying and competing. With such a welcoming environment you'll be sure you want to stay. All of this is topped off by great social nights including charity shop ocean - a firm favourite within the dodgeball society.
Our current coach is an NTU legend and local Nottingham Dodgeball team captain – he runs training every Thursday and helps us solidify our position as a fantastic team.
