Play Some Dodge Ball For A Good Cause On Sunday Afternoon

Love Dodge Ball? Want to play for a good cause? The Rotary Youth Club Eboard is hosting a Dodge Ball tournament, cleverly named “Dodge Polio,” to raise awareness of the disease Polio.

Polio still remains in Afghanistan and Pakistan, but Rotary International has made significant strides in eradicating Polio in many other countries such as India and Nigeria.

This tournament is one of the Rotary Youth Club’s biggest events of the year and will be held on Sunday at the Sportscenter. Doors open at 12 noon and games begin at 12:30 p.m. Please form teams of 5 to 8 people and fill out the registration form. The cost is $5 per team member. Entry fees can be paid at the door or online. Five people will play at a time and teams can have as many as three people on the bench to sub in.

The tournament can accommodate a maximum of 30 teams and entry is first come, first serve. Teams will compete for prizes.
