Dodgeball is a ball sport in which players of two teams try to hit their opponents with a ball before it bounces while avoiding being hit themselves.
The sport is typically played among school kids in North America but now internationally, the sport has emerged as a popular middle, high school and college sport and is also played in informal settings.
There are many variations of the game played in different part of the world: In Spain, it is known as Datchball. In India, it is called "Sekan-tadi", "Gend Tadi" and "Maram Pitti". In China, it is known as "Da Yi Mao" and the game is played with a small round sand bag instead of a ball.
