VDL is excited to offer a new style of dodgeball for the very first time. Come try out playing dodgeball with 7″ foam balls using WDBF RULESIf you’ve ever been curious about this style of dodgeball, this is a great opportunity to learn, meet new people, and build new skills. Reserve your spot in advance before the season sells out.

Here’s a quick breakdown of the differences you can expect:

  1. Ball Size: Most people find it easier to grip the 7″ ball as it’s smaller.
  2. Court Dimensions: We play on a full volleyball court instead of the half court you’re used to.
  3. Timed Matches: Games will be timed rather than the usual “whichever team gets knocked out first”. And each time a team knocks out the other team, that counts as a point. You try to score as many points in a game as possible. Team with the most points wins the game.

Even if you don’t have any aspirations of making it onto Team Canada and competing on the global dodgeball stage, it’s still going to be a lot of fun to try something new. The new division will be a draft style format which means you will have an opportunity to play with people you never have before.

Details are as follows:

  • 7″ Division begins in early November and ends mid Dec 2021
  • All players must be fully vaccinated (double vaccinated) and are required to show proof of vaccination as required by the Provincial Health Officer (PHO) prior to entering the gym.
