Vegas Hosts the 2015 World Dodgeball Championship



By Miriam Latto

The best players in the world of dodgeball came together in Las Vegas August 15-16 for the 2015 World Dodgeball Championship. Hosted by the World Dodgeball Federation, 14 men’s and women’s division teams from the USA, Canada, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand, France and Mexico joined the local Las Vegas team to battle for the world championship.

A series of exhibition games were held the day before at the Fashion Show Mall to give teams a chance to practice. It also provided exciting entertainment for the crowd gathered behind nets that ensured onlookers didn’t become part of the fun.

In a slightly more intense version of the game you played in elementary school, these players seem to float through the air like the balls they’re throwing at their opponents. And here are some pictures to prove it.
