Dodge, duck, dip, dive & dodge!

Welcome to the University of Derby Dodgeball Club the Derby Seahawks!
We have a friendly inclusive atmosphere, competitive men's, women's, and mixed teams, and a range of fun socials!


What is Dodgeball?

Dodgeball is one of the fastest-growing sports, with over 100 clubs operating across the UK. The games are fast-paced and high intensity, but accessible to all, with players across the country varying in age and skill level. Doesn't matter if you're a beginner, we welcome all abilities, whether you have never thrown a ball in your life or had years of experience!

The aim of the game is to eliminate your opponents by either hitting them with a thrown dodgeball or catching one of their throws, whilst dodging any incoming attacks yourself. It is a sport that truly emphasises teamwork, fast-thinking, and adaptation.

We pride ourselves on not only our sporting excellence but most importantly our inclusivity. We welcome all members, it is completely up to you whether you would like to play competitively against other Universities. Or come to train with us and find/create new friendships and enjoy the social side of our club.


What we offer:

We currently have a competitive team entered into the BUCS leagues. We also offer the opportunity to play/ compete in open tournaments across the country.

Last year both of our teams had a great year, with the men's and women's team being crowned the BUCS CHAMPIONS,  and our men's team coming runner-up in the national University Champs. As well as this the club was awarded BUCS points of the year by the union.

As well as being competitive, we are a social club and hold regular socials for those who drink and those who don't.
