Competitive Dodgeball in Asia

I wasn’t aware that dodgeball was such a highly competitive sport until I watched this video of two teams of schoolkids playing. The video is far more fascinating and watchable than you’d think, too. This naturally meant I needed to go research, so off I toddled. Turns out that Asian dodgeball isn’t the same as American dodgeball; the sport in the video seems more formalized, and with a single ball, although it seems that there are a decent number of variants. The video below features Japan (in blue) vs Hong Kong (red, obviously), and the game is absolutely brilliant. Makes me wish I played this variant as a kid at school.

And of course, if you want some more, here’s a video from the Japanese Nationals.
