The World Dodgeball Federation (WDBF) was established in 2011 as the governing body for the sport of dodgeball internationally. Headquartered in Edmonton, Canada, the main objective of the federation is to develop dodgeball by promoting the sport globally with the principles of unifying educational, cultural, and humanitarian values and focusing on youth development programs.

The WDBF has the largest geographical reach of any dodgeball organization, growing from 8 National Federations to over 79 between 2016 and 2021. The rapid growth is a result of a reorganized governance model that allows members to share expertise in all levels of management. The WDBF sanctions the sport in all formats, including foam, cloth, rubber, beach, trampoline and - introduced in 2019 - digital. The WDBF continues to strive to strengthen the bonds of friendship between national federations and the world.

What is Dodgeball?

Dodgeball was first introduced to many of us as a child on the school yard or as part of physical education class. It is a team sport. The concept of the game is for players to dodge or catch thrown balls by the opposition and at the same time hit their opponents.

It is known to be one of the most accessible sports in the world because it can be played by people of all ages in formal tournaments or casual settings. Barriers to entry are low, with participants requiring no more than six balls and a defined space. The number of balls in play and the nature of play ensures that all players are engaged in each and every game.

 

Simple to organize, inexpensive to maintain, and easy to grasp, children and adults everywhere are discovering the rush of the game.
