YOU'VE seen it in the movie of the same name but now Dodgeball is coming to Huntingdon!
A company called Interdodgeball is setting up a Dodgeball League in Huntingdon next month and is looking for teams to try this fun and energetic sport.
Amy Pakes of Interdodgeball said: "Dodgeball is a great fun sport which can be played by both men and women and older people just as much as those in their twenties.
"The sport boomed in popularity after the launch of the film with Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn and is actually a professional sport in America."
The aim of Dodgeball is to strike your opponents with a ball while avoiding being hit yourself. Teams contain a minimum of six players with squads of up to ten preferred.
Interdodgeball work closely with the UK Dodgeball Association and already run leagues in Milton Keynes and Northampton.
