Girls Dodge Too! University Webinar

On Wednesday 22nd September 2021, we hosted a Girls Dodge Too! university webinar, focused on how to increase female dodgeball participation at university level. It featured guests such as Lizzie Rodulson and Aqeilah Khan, 2 of our GDT!

  • Come Join In: A player’s journey
  • Marketing strategies
