All schools need to come up with a team name for the tournament!!

16 schools max for this event. 

Unfortunately due to a lack of space we won’t be permitting parents to spectate in the sportshall and we have no viewing gallery.

We will send out dropping off and parking details to all schools prior to the event.

All schools need to wear their traditional school P.E kit colours and suitable footwear. (to prevent slipping)

Bring any refreshments as food and drink will not be provided.  

Main Rules.

Games are played on a doubles badminton court. A two-foot centre zone is marked across the centre of the court using non-marking tape.

• Three dodgeballs are used and positioned in the centre zone at the start of each game.

• A player is out if a direct throw from an opposing team player hits them below head height. If a throw hits a player in the face they are still in – if a throw hits a player on the back or top of the head when they are not facing play or ducking down, they are out.

• A player is out if their throw is caught by a member of the opposing team. A successful catch enables a player who is already out to return to the game, this must always be the first player who was out and they must return behind the return line.

• If a player is hit by a throw and a teammate catches that same ball before it hits any other surface then they have saved the first player hit from being out.

• A player may use a ball in their possession to block a thrown ball – they must ensure they keep full control of the ball they are holding.

• The leading team (the team with the most players on court) has five seconds from the referee’s call to throw the majority of the balls in their possession – the leading team can always hold on to one ball. • You can win a game by either eliminating all the opposing players or having more players on your team at the end of two minutes.
