We have introduced Regional Leagues as an alternative to small opens in response to the British Dodgeball Club Survey of 2019. When asked to feed back about competitions:
- 44% of respondents asked for more local competition
- 31% of respondents stated that the standard of dodgeball at opens was too high for their club
If enough teams enter a regional league we will split the league into 2 divisions to ensure teams play opposition of the correct standard. If there are not enough teams entered to form a viable regional league, we will offer teams the chance to enter their next closest league, prioritising feedback from teams, travel distance and competitive standard.
There will be 2 leagues per year in order to give new teams the chance to enter halfway through a season, the Autumn/Winter league and the Spring/Summer league. Regional Leagues are open to entry from both community and university dodgeball clubs/teams.
