Dodgeball

Watch This Is Atlanta on PBA30 Atlanta's PBS StationEverybody remembers dodgeball from childhood; y’know, that game where you got picked last and eliminated first.

Or maybe you hid behind all the big people until everyone else was out, and then you got pummeled by six balls at once. Well, now you can take your revenge.

The Creative Loafing newspaper has begun an annual dodgeball tournament right here in Atlanta. But here’s the thing; it’s for adults!

Community teams come together to compete for local bragging rights and cash prizes, but that’s only half the fun. Teams such as “Ninjas Hate Pirates” come wearing ninja masks and mercilessly trash-talk their arch-rivals, the eye-patch sporting “Pirates Hate Ninjas.”

If you’re interested in year-round dodgeball action, the tournament’s head referee, Cat DaCosta, has the solution. As a representative of the National Amateur Dodgeball Association, she runs a weekly league at The Gym at Peachtree Presbyterian Church.
