As our dodgeball club grows and as this amazing sport increases in popularity it is important to reflect on the growth and development of our players we have met over the years.
Derik Phan first started playing at our dodgeball club at 13 years of age and is one of our youngest dodgeballers. This kid has been playing with us for over 3 years and has earnt the nickname “Young Blood” around the courts as he regularly holds his own against our older more experienced players.
2019 sees two BIG debuts for Derik where he will be competing at state and international level. He has been recruited to play in the NSW Dodgeball League representing Sydney Storm where he will be competing against the top dodgeball teams in NSW. In addition to state league, in April this year Derik will also make his debut representing Zany Sports Dodgeball Club at the 2019 Asia Pacific Invitational in Auckland. This tournament attracts the most elite players from across the globe and will feature teams from USA, Malaysia, Singapore, NZ and more!
We are excited to see what the future holds for Derik and are proud to foster his development in this sport.
Our 2nd Annual Men’s and Women’s tournament is back in 2019!
This tournament is a super fun and inclusive way for veteran and beginner players to compete together on the same team in a social day of dodge! All fitness and experience levels welcome.
How it works:
1. Register individually for the gender category you wish to play in and answer a few questions about your dodgeball experience to help us allocate you.
2. We will create teams from the registrations and spread out experienced and beginner players so all teams are as evenly matched as possible.
•$30 per person if paid prior to event day
•$40 per person if paying on the day
Upon registration players will be emailed an invoice with payment instructions. Bank deposit is recommended to avoid credit card surcharges.
*A portion of the funds raised from this tournament will go towards supporting our representative players competing at the Asia Pacific Invitational in NZ this April!
Invite your friends, share the event around and let’s raise some funds!

Yes yes, we’ve all seen the movie, but that was sooooo 2004. Welcome to 2016, where smartphones have revolutionised the world and wait, what’s that? Dodgeball is actually a competitive sport with its own elite leagues all over the world with Olympic potential?! Hells to the yeah.
Dodgeball has recently become a rapidly growing sport in Australia. With the WDBF Dodgeball World Championships coming up this October, we thought this would be a perfect opportunity to “hit you with some knowledge” about a sport we are all so passionate about here at Zany Sports. Check it.
Zany Sports Dodgeball is growing! We have partnered up with Hills Indoor Sports to bring our popular sport of dodgeball to Seven Hills.
We will be running a free trial day a week before our season starts to encourage all new players to give it a go and learn the rules. Dodgeball is played 6 a side with minimum 1 girl on court. Our matches run for 40 minutes and our season will run for 10 weeks every Sunday afternoon.
Free Trial Day: Sunday 10th July from 3-5pm @ Hills Indoor Sports
Season Starts: Sunday 17th July from 3pm onwards @ Hills Indoor Sports
For those wanting a bit of extra coaching and dodgeball practice, we will be holding an optional training night on TUESDAY 2ND FEB FROM 8.30PM-9.30PM.
We will be going over some team strategy, court control, throwing, blocking and dodging techniques for those who want to improve their game. Price will be $10 per player.
We will also be holding trials in the next few weeks to submit teams into the Anzac Weekend Trans Tasman Invitational. This will be Zany’s first international tournament and would be great to take a team or two over to NZ to compete. Please speak to Rob or myself for more info or keep an eye out for an email in the coming weeks with trial dates.
LASTLY, if you haven’t done so already, please join our FACEBOOK GROUP HERE. You can chat with other dodgeballers, ask for subs, discuss games, share photos and videos and more as well as keep informed about the latest happenings in our competition.
