Dallas Dodgeball’s Winter 2014 Championship will be held at the Fretz Recreation Center from 7-9PM on Thursday, February 20th, 2014. The championship tournament is co-ed, ages 18 and up. We’ll have the entire gym and will be playing round robin style until 8:40PM. The championship game will be held at 8:40 between the two teams with the best records of the evening and medals will be awarded to the 1st Place team. Uniforms and costumes are encouraged but not required. Teams and players will meet at 7PM and play will begin once teams are finalized. Players without teams (free agents) will be drafted by teams in need of players, and/or new teams will be formed. No prior registration required. $5 per person at the door.
In order to maximize everyone’s playing time, we plan to have six teams playing on two courts. Ideally, there will be seven per team, but we will be flexible on team numbers depending on how many people show up to play.
Here’s how the round robin will work: Your team plays first game. If your team wins, your team stays on the court. If your team loses, your team exits and the sitting team enters. After two consecutive wins, winning team exits court, leaving losing team and sitting team to play. Thus, all teams play about same number of games win or lose. Teams are rotated every 20 minutes. Max 5 minutes per game. After 5 minutes, team with the most players on the court wins the match (or if even) play continues until the next player is eliminated. The championship match is a best of three, or until time runs out at 9PM. There will be no refs, but team captains will manage games. Rules are the same as played on regular Open Play Thursdays as found at www.dallasdodgeball.com/open-play-thursdays/
