Opens and Leagues – Juniors

Junior dodgeball is growing all the time in the U.K. with new clubs forming each season to take part in our leagues and open tournaments. At British Dodgeball, we are providing more opportunities than ever before in the sport for those players both new and experienced to compete and represent their junior club or school.

We are hosting 3 junior events over summer 2021, details can be found under the junior opens section. There will be no junior leagues until the 2021/2022 season starts. 

An updated Junior Competitions Guide will be available containing more information about the opportunities for the 2021/2022 season soon.

We are excited to host 3 junior opens through the Summer (June – August) of 2021. These opens will provide juniors with a fun experience of returning to junior dodgeball competitions and events. They will also provide us all with a much needed opportunity to reconnect in person. 

Due to the nature of these events being part of our Summer Return to Dodgeball there may be additional Covid restrictions in place to aid a safe return to play.

In order to adhere to facility capacities all our events this summer will have a strict number of players and teams permitted in the sports hall at any one time.

If you need to pay via an alternative method, please get in touch with Alice via [email protected]

Please ensure you read our Covid Safe Event Rules as well as our Return to Play guidance for England.

The 2021/22 season will see the changes in age categories come into effect. These age categories are more appropriate to the development levels of our young dodgeballers. There will be an under 11’s, under 13’s, under 15’s and under 17’s league taking place in the North West and the Midlands, as well as an under 11’s and under 15’s league taking place in Dunblane, Scotland. New for the 2021/2022 season is a Spring/Summer South Junior League featuring three rounds based in Cambridge. The Midlands and North West league will be split into Autumn/Winter (3 rounds) and Spring/Summer (3 rounds). The Scottish League will run across 4 rounds from November 2021 to May 2022.
