Dodgeball is a popular team sport that is played in schools, recreation centers, and gyms all over the world. It is a fast-paced and exciting game that requires quick reflexes and good teamwork. In this article, we will explain how to set up, score, and play Dodgeball.
To play Dodgeball, you will need at least two teams of six players each. The teams should be divided into equal numbers of players, and each team should have a captain who is responsible for leading the team. The game is played on a gymnasium floor or similar large open area. You will also need several rubber balls to line up for each team.
The objective of Dodgeball is to eliminate all of the players on the opposing team by hitting them with a ball or catching a ball thrown by the opposing team. A player is eliminated if they are hit by a live ball thrown by the opposing team or if they catch a ball thrown by the opposing team. The team with the last player remaining is declared the winner.

To begin the game, the teams will line up on opposite sides of the gymnasium. Each team will have a set of balls at their feet. On the signal to start, the teams will begin throwing balls at the opposing team. Players are allowed to dodge, catch, and deflect balls, but they cannot use their feet or hands to control the ball.
When a player is hit by a live ball or caught a ball thrown by the opposing team, they are eliminated and must leave the playing area. The game continues until all players on one team have been eliminated. The team with the last player remaining is declared the winner.
Variations and Alternate Rules
There are many variations of Dodgeball that can be played, including different numbers of players, different sized balls, and different playing surfaces. Some variations also include a “time out” rule, where a team can call a time out to bring back an eliminated player. Alternatively, you can play with a different scoring method, like the first team to reach a certain number of points wins.
