Benchball / Dodgeball / Multi-skills

At lunchtimes children in KS2 can take part in either dodgeball or benchball. It’s 30 minutes of intense competition which is over in a flash!


Dodgeball is a team sport in which players on two teams try to throw balls and hit opponents, while avoiding being hit themselves. The objective of each team is to eliminate all members of the opposing team by hitting them with thrown balls, catching a ball thrown by an opponent, or inducing an opponent to commit a violation, such as stepping outside the court.


Benchball is a fun and easy game. The game simply involves 2 teams trying to successfully throw dodgeballs to their respective goalies on opposite sides of a gym or courtyard to score a point.
