WHAT IS DODGEBALL?
Well, either you are one of the lucky ones who wasn't forced into this life defining P.E. experience or you were born after 1985 in which case it was already banned from schools to save your self esteem.
Dodgeball, (bombardment, war ball, prison ball, etc) is a game that is mostly played in physical education classes in elementary school. Two teams of equal size face off in gym, armed with red rubber balls. Players try to eliminate the other team by throwing the balls at their opponents. Players are called out if hit with the ball and are banished to the out line. The team who eliminates their opponents first is the winner.
