Feeling Dodgy

After a long day in the rat race, it’s easy to get nostalgic for the simple days of childhood fun and games. Instead of just daydreaming about days past, Valley dodgeball warriors funnel their fury through various National Dodgeball Organization outings such as Open Gym Night on Wednesday, July 2.

The basic rules of dodgeball are easy. Peg opposing players with a dodgeball and avoid being tagged with said ball. If you get hit, you’re out. If the dodgeball you’ve thrown gets caught, you’re out. Grownups having flashbacks of cruel team selection processes and brutal ball-based bruises should know that the NDO is made up of friendly folks and their chosen dodgeballs are of the non-sting variety.

The National Dodgeball Organization’s Open Gym Night meets weekly from 7 to 9 p.m. on Wednesdays at the Sports Club at City Square, 4000 North Central Avenue. Admission is $7. For more info, visit
