Minor League Dodgeball

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Now's your chance to join the Los Angeles Dodgeball Society without risking too much injury. The society's Stay Puft Marshmallow Monday Night league starts April 9 at the Hollywood Rec Center (1122 Cole Avenue). This co-ed league plays with mostly "no-sting" balls. Teams consist of no more than 15 people, each competing for "the sweetest ice cream party ever." Games are at 8 and 9 p.m. Monday nights for nine weeks. Entry fee is $50.

Feeling more adventurous? The Hasselhoff Dodgeball League (played with old school rubber balls the society warns are "less forgiving on the privates") kicks off Wednesday, April 18 with a jam-boree from 8 to 10 p.m. also at the rec center. The season lasts nine weeks and league dues include a "sweet" shirt. Also $50.
