The Largest Game of Dodgeball in the World
The largest game of dodgeball was played by 4,979 participants and was organized by the University of Alberta at the Universiade Pavillion (Butterdome), in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, on 3 February 2012. The University of Alberta has successfully achieved this record on three separate occasions with the yellow team emerging as victors of each game.
The game lasted over an hour with over 1,250 balls in play. Dean of students, Frank Robinson, recounted the previous records. “The first was set in 2010 with 1,198 players, and the next year with 2012.” Robinson says each game has brought the university community closer together.
