Surprisingly not run by a bunch of international tea-bagging victims, the World Dodgeball Society (started in LA by a guy that used to date Ke$ha) adult-ifies the time-honored childhood pastime of throwing balls at people, then adds booze, music, and spandex-laden girls.
WDS will host two leagues to start -- one in SF, one in Oakland -- each lasting eight to nine weeks and including cleverly named teams of 10-20 (past monikers have included Camel Toes, Tight Supremacists, and Cash 4 Gold), which'll all compete in weekly 50min matches where drinking is encouraged after gameplay, likely by Ben Howland.
And for those not ready to commit to a league, WDS also throws one-offs like Bring Your Own Lady night (invite a girl and get into an all-play extravaganza free), a triath-a-fun (a cross-discipline tournament of dodgeball, 4-square & Berlin-style ping pong w/ a post-tourney WDS-sponsored tab at a nearby bar), and an Irish Games night on St. Patty’s Day, complete with a belching contest, drinking relay, and potato bobbing, where you may or may not come up with a mustache, googly eyes, and mini top-hat.
League registration for Oakland closes next week, and San Francisco’s Mission Rec Center league'll start up in April, giving you more than enough time to put your skills to the test(icle).
