Get Fit Iredell’s Community Dodge Ball Tournament drew hundreds to the Statesville Fitness & Activity Center on Sunday afternoon. Richard Griggs, program director for the Statesville Recreation and Parks Department, said a record 23 teams registered for the event, which lasted two hours beyond its scheduled completion time with the increased participation.
The City of Statesville team came in first, with the Slum Dog Millionaires taking second and Town of Troutman finishing third.
The six-player teams used soft foam “gator” balls in the pain-free, double-elimination tournament, during which good-natured ribbing and friendly competition ruled the day.
The Get Fit Iredell coalition sponsors fun, active events, such as its April Dance-A-Thon and May Family Frenzy, to promote the enjoyment of exercise in a social setting.
