Peter Rothbart (not pictured) is one of a growing number of Seattleites who take sadistic pleasure in whacking strangers with precisely aimed heavy balls. The sport, aka Dodgeball, draws crowds to the weekly pick-up games hosted on Wednesday and Friday evenings at Cal Anderson park.
Dodgeball Seattle wants to build a portable dodgeball court and bring the game to other Seattle neighborhoods. We’re excited to announce our grant to help them do just that.
Designing a portable court that can survive the punishment of regular games requires some experimental engineering work. The team has already built some prototypes that you can watch getting some live fire testing here.
When the court is ready for its debut, we’ll post an announcement on our Twitter and Facebook pages. In the meantime, you can get some practice in at Cal Anderson in Capitol Hill and Loyal Heights in Ballard – check out Seattle Dodgeball’s website for more info.
