Dip, duck dodge, dive — that’s the key.
Elite Fitness Center on Meany Avenue is prepared to be home to Bakersfield’s only dodgeball league.
Inside the gym there are two full size volleyball courts, which is where the league is set to play.
The objective of dodgeball is to eliminate all players of the opposing team by throwing a game ball and hitting the opposing player below the shoulders on the fly.
A player is out if:
-They throw a ball that is caught by the other team.
-If hey get hit by a ball thrown by the other team.
-Players may use the ball to block; however, if the ball is knocked out of their hand while blocking, they will be out.
-They hit another player above the shoulders.
-They cross the center line or go out of bounds dodging a ball.
Elite Fitness will hold a tournament in October to kick off league play.
Anyone interested in participating should contact the gym for further details.
Elite Fitness Center also offers recreational adult co-ed volleyball.
The volleyball league meets Tuesday nights at 6:00 pm.
