Sadly, we cannot tell you about our long and victorious history like most other sports pages on here will do, all we can tell you is that we are the underdog on the list of KCLSU sports. Every scrap of logic tells us that this shouldn’t work, so few people have played dodgeball as part of a club before this point, why would they want to take 1 hour a week, pay £15 a year, to throw some balls at people they may not even know yet? I’ll tell you why, because in a world that has been kicking the underdogs rather a lot as of late, it’s time the underdog bites back. They told us there was no way we’d be able to start a dodgeball club as a bunch of first years with the deadline already passed, they were wrong about that, they’ll be wrong about us succeeding as well.
So…for all of you out there that have ever been told you aren’t good enough, be that in the classroom, on the sports pitch, in a social circle…it’s time for you to bite back, time to show the nay-sayers that you are every bit as good as them, and time to be able to tell people you were one of the first members of what will soon be the biggest sports club at King’s.
For all of you out there who have been blessed with always being considered ‘good enough,’ why not throw another achievement under that belt, why not do yourself and all those you know a favour, come along to a session or a social and see first hand what kind of club this is, and help to make it even better.
‘But I’m already on a committee for a sports team, isn’t this a backwards step?’ - Of course not many positions on our committee are currently vacant, come along to a session and ask about these oppurtunities to help boost your CV.
Speaking of boosting your CV, we’re currently in talks with one of the Big Four accounting firms and it is likely we will be playing a friendly game against one of them, a perfect oppurtunity to network and help improve your career prospects.
Initially we will be going to Guy’s bar but after a few weeks, with the club at a reasonable size we will be appointing a sub-committee to manage trips to the vault, offering something for everyone.
As soon as we have adequate numbers (should not take long at all with current estimates), we will get the first proper social well underway.
Why not come along to our first session:
Friday 31st January 6-7pm!
Downside Fisher Youth Club, Coxson Place, Druid St, London SE1 2EZ
Just a 12 minute walk from London Bridge/Guy's Campus!
First session Free!
It’s the things you don’t do in life that you regret.
If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball.
