RULES OF DODGEBALL

Set up:
• 5-6 players per team
• 5 dodgeballs along the centre line of the court
• Players start the round touching the back wall
• Round starts on referees whistle

Rules:
• On the whistle players begin the opening rush to the centre
• The ball must go to the back of the court before going live
• All players must remain within their team boundary. Stepping outside the boundary results in them being eliminated.
• A player is eliminated when hit by a live ball thrown by the opposing team
• A player is eliminated when a ball they have thrown is caught by an opposing team member before going dead. This also results in the opposing team bringing a player back on to a maximum of 5 players
• A player is eliminated if a ball they are holding is knocked out of their hands
• A ball only goes dead when it touches the ground or outside a boundary
• A player hit by a ball may catch a ball after it hits them before it goes dead
• Whichever side has the most dodgeballs is obliged to attack within 5 seconds
• Players who are eliminated must leave the court by the back line
• Referees decision is final, one referee cannot overrule another
