What a weekend it was for all involved. The Men's team lost out to a strong Malaysian side after forcing the game into overtime and finished in 4th place. They had some great victories throughout the weekend, highlights include a 26-4 win over the Republic of Ireland in the Quarters and a 25-7 win against Canada.

The Ladies team went from stride to stride throughout the weekend, including a resounding 27-1 win against Singapore in the Quarter Final. After beating Hong Kong 18-6 they progressed to a World Championship Final against Austria. An amazing effort in the final means the England Women's Dodgeball team are World Champions.

The Mixed team had a strong weekend outclassing several opponents on their way to being named Mixed Dodgeball World Champions. Highlights from the weekend include a 22-4 victory over Canada and a 23-5 win over Australia in their Semi Final.
