Dodgeball is a team sport where two opposing teams attempt to throw balls and hit opponents while not being hit themselves. There is evidence that dodgeball began in Africa by throwing rocks as a training exercise for warriors. Today, Dodgeball is played both recreationally and in leagues, and is comprised of three versions including an elimination game, a timed game, and a scored game based on hits or points. Rubber or dense foam balls are typically used, and players can attempt to win the game by gaining hits on opposing individuals, or by successfully eliminating all players of the opposing team.

A WDBF Dodgeball Court is the internationally defined area of play for a game of Dodgeball. Commonly played on an indoor basketball or tennis court, dodgeball courts are defined by end lines and side lines, with an attack line at the front of the play zone that cannot be passed. The neutral zone is split in half by the court centerline, and is the area just beyond the attack line. Dodgeball can be played on both outdoor and indoor courts with some dodgeball courts even being located on sandy beaches.

WDBF Dodgeball Courts have an overall length of 60’ (18.29 ), width of 30’ (9.14 m), and have a total area of 1800 ft² (167 m²). The neutral zone in WDBF Dodgeball is 4’ (1.22 m) wide with attack lines set 10’ (3.05 m) from the center.
