Major League Dodgeball has been invited to participate in the Wellington Invitational Dodgeball Tournament, set to take place in Wellington, New Zealand on Saturday, November 22, 2014.
MLD is inviting our playing members to represent our team over in New Zealand, for this prestigious tournament. The Wellington Invitational will feature some potent opposition, with regional teams from across New Zealand, in addition to guest teams from Singapore also taking part.
There are two grades where MLD can enter teams – Men’s and Mixed. We are looking to register teams, possibly in both grades.
There will be a Meet and Greet Event on the Friday night, with the tournament staged on the Saturday. Dodgeball Wellington has also arranged a Social Function following the tournament, as well as a Party Bus, which takes everyone into the city later in the evening.
Players representing MLD will be presented with official MLD uniforms, including – Playing Jerseys (tops / shorts) and Team Jackets.
Anyone who is seriously interested in representing MLD in the Wellington Invitational Dodgeball Tournament, please contact us as soon as possible. Ideally, we would like to organise this sooner, rather than later.
We want to finalise our playing squads – possibly a Men’s and Mixed team – and have everything booked by mid-October, to allow ample time to prepare for the tournament. We will organise some training sessions prior to the tournament, to build team morale and go over playing tactics etc.
This is a fantastic opportunity to not only travel overseas, but to be part of the MLD team and take your Dodgeball game to a new-level, build friendships with people from across the globe, and participate in competitive sport on an international scale.
Accommodation and flights will need to be arranged in the coming weeks. Dodgeball Wellington have recommended suitable accommodation, within a minute of the Sports Stadium, with prices being very reasonable.
IMPORTANT: While planning for this event, please anticipate the costs involved, including accommodation, flights and personal spending money. More details will be provided in the coming weeks.
