The concept is not new. It comes from playgrounds all over the US. It is a game of cunning, strength, agility, and quickness. It is dodgeball. And Louisville.com is hosting the first citywide invitational tournament to find the team of six individuals that will become the reigning champs of the schoolyard.
At 7pm on March 13, 2010, thirty two teams will convene at the Basketball Academy in east Louisville. One by one, in three minute matches, they will be eliminated. At the end of three hours, one team will be left standing. And they'll go home with more money than they came with.
Entry fee is $75 per team (before February 28). Grand prize is $300 cash to the winning team with additional prizes for second place, third place, most outrageous team costumes, weakest competitor, the "boobie" prize, and more.
As details develop, we'll add them to this page.You can enter today by downloading an entry form  and sending it in with your entry fee.
* If you would like to secure your team's spot in the tournament, but are unable to gather every team member's signature for the waiver/liabity release, we will accept your registration form. Remaining team members must sign the release at the check-in table the day of the tournament to be eligible to participate.
