Ultimate Dodge pick up two silver medals at the British Dodgeball Championships

Newmarket-based Ultimate Dodge returned from the British Dodgeball Championships with two silver medals, but they could quite easily have won three golds.

It was the Under-11s and Under-16s that finished runners-up at the event in Liverpool, while the Under-13s ended up in fourth place.

Coach Michael Grant was pleased with the performances, and has revealed things were close to being even more positive.

“These tournaments are getting tougher and tougher each year so for us to be in the mix of the top four is fantastic,” he said.

“We slipped up in each of the three age categories and yet we still have won gold medals.

“The Under-11s drew their final game, if they had won it they would have won gold and not silver.

“The Under-16s drew 6-6 with the winners and lost to another team they would usually have beaten. Had they won that game they would have got gold as well.

“And the Under-13s headed into their final game in fourth spot, but a 10-2 win would have seen them win the gold – it was that close.”

Ultimate Dodge’s season has now finished, with training set to continue until July.

The club would like to hear from any potential new sponsors or players ahead of the new campaign getting under way – likely to be in September. For more information contact info@ultimatedodge.co.uk
