Off to canary wharf for dodgeball.
Was a good turnout, Graham, Steve, Mark, Vanessa,
Nicky, Chris, Ross, Tom griggs, Charlotte were playing
and Ruth took video. The game was much faster and
more energetic than I was expecting. You start each game
with a dash to the centre to collect the ball before your
opponenets which involved a lot of dynamic stretching,
then you have to throw yourselves manically out of the
way of the ball. The simple act of throwing it is also very
strenuous as the ball is large and soft you really have to put
some welly behind it to hit the other players or prevent them
catching it. Steve was very aggressive and Ross was very effective
in his Hawaiian shirt. The girls made a real effort with the headbands.
Goodness knows what the score was, most games were over very quickly
and a catch at the end could make a quick swing in the fortunes of a team
making the game very exciting. We stopped for a couple of beers in the bar after.
