Dodgeball against Alzheimer's

Dwight: We could sell blood and semen.

Dwight: What? Not mixed together.
- Dodgeball

One of our players, Karen, is arranging a Dodgeball Tournament on Wednesday the 10th August in aid of the Alzheimer's Society.

We're currently between seasons before the action starts again in September we thought that it might be a good idea to enter a team, support a great cause and use the opportunity to give prospective new players a taste of dodgeball with a view to joining us on a more permanent basis.

It turns out that Brockley isn't the hotbed of Dodgeball talent we thought it might be as the 2nd team 'The Really Awful Dodgers' - mainly recruited from a Brockley Central posting - managed to finish their first season with a spectacular reputation. The only blemish on their 0% record was when one of the other teams failed to turn up for a fixture and they won by default.

However, the apres-Dodgeball has been brilliant and it is fast becoming fashionable to have an Awful Dodger as a 'celebrity guest' at many a Brockley House Party. The only drawback is that, judging by the contents of our fridge last Sunday, they turn up laden with bottles of rose wine and then procede to drink the house dry of rum.

We're really keen to keep this season's recruitment drive to the local areas. If any South East Londoners want to join our happy squad for the tournament or for the Autumn League season they should e-mail: the_awful_dodgers@hotmail.co.uk for more details.

Tournament Details:
Wednesday 10th August
Venue: Drill Hall - Mile End Road
Entry fee: £5 per player (a bargain compared to our regular league match fees)
Times: There are slots for 5pm, 6pm and 7pm. We'll probably start at 7pm.
