Summer Windup

First of all, we’d like to apologize for the delay in booking a summer windup. With the closure of Movados we had to look around and create a new partnership with a new sponsor and make sure that they are able to continue to offer the community comparable.

Luckily, Garbonzos on Ellice (1320 Ellice Ave) stepped up and is offering something even better for the teams – instead of a free pitcher of beer each team will receive $20 towards their bill (which can cover a pitcher and a little extra!).

We will be hosting the Windup this Saturday November 30th at 8:00pm – we understand that 10 days is not huge notice, but so long as all goes well we should be able to book all the 2020 Windups in advance and give more notice then.

So come on down, eat, drink and be merry before the Holiday season hits and enjoy the company of your fellow dodgeballers!

Team league registration delayed

We will be delaying the opening of registration for our team leagues to November 27th at 6:30pm – the same time draft league opens to the public.

Unfortunately we are still waiting for a response from one of the gymnasiums, and do not want to open registration until we know exactly how much space we have as it will determine what divisions we can offer.

Used dodgeballs are back in stock!

We have finished updating our inventory after receiving all the balls back from our referees from the Summer 2019 season.

We now have 10 boxes of 24 retired dodgeballs in stock. These balls typically have small tears or the foam has become soft and have quite a bit of life left in them, they are just no longer suitable for competitive play as we strive to make sure our equipment is always in good shape and is rotated out regularly.

Use coupon code “10off” to get $10 off a crate of retired balls. Get yourself a discount, or use the $10 off to cover the cost of local delivery ($10 to deliver within Winnipeg) and we’ll take them right to your door!

If you or your organization would like to purchase 3 or more boxes, please contact info@dodgeballwinnipeg.com and we will discuss a rate for bulk purchase.

Remembrance day

A friendly reminder to everyone that remembrance day this year is November 11th. There will be no games on November 11th.

Sunday November 10th is not a holiday and therefore games will still be run as normal.

The important dates page has had the Fall 2019 dates published since late 2018 and they have not changed. If you are ever curious about what dates the season runs, please make sure to check that page!

The dates for 2020 will be added to that page in the near future. Make sure to check it if you are ever wondering about what dates things will be run.

Have a great rest of your season!
