Dodgeball Qualifiers a HIt - Ouch!

“If you can dodge a spanner…you can dodge a ball!”

Thankfully there weren’t too many spanners to dodge today during the annual dodgeball qualifiers, though there were plenty of balls flying around. Once again, due to increased interest, the Harlow SSP were required to expand the event from last year. This year we welcomed 32 teams to Mark Hall Academy Sports Centre throughout the day, staggering events in the morning and afternoon. With some expert advice on the rules, demonstrated perfectly by the school staff, the children were grouped and ready to play.

 

Both events ran really well, considering the logistics of central timing and the difficulties when umpiring – it really is one of the toughest events to officiate as everything happens so fast and all at the same time. Having said this, disputes were few and far between, with the children and staff demonstrating great integrity and honesty throughout.

As always, thanks were given to the amazing staff members who helped organise and officiate, alongside Mr Stacey, Mrs Pardoe and Mr Hammond. We are able to expand our events due to fantastic collaboration and dedication of all the people involved – great job all!

The 8 teams who qualified from today’s event, will meet in the finals on Friday 11thOctober at Mark Hall Academy for the chance to represent Harlow in the County Finals.
