“Here at Globo Gym, we’re better than you - and we know it.”
You’ve watched Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn go toe-to-toe in the movie Dodgeball, now experience this brutally competitive, completely unfair sport on your stag do. Leeds is the location, and you’ll get a properly planned tournament overseen by an instructor, who also plays ref. We’ll book a court at a sports venue within easy reach of Leeds city centre. No previous experience or talent required. Just bring your trainers and a killer instinct.
After the host (if you’re fortunate you’ll get a pretty female one) has run through the really loose rules, it’s straight down to business. Play the basic ‘pick off the slowest first’ format, and then have a bit of fun with variations like ‘Get the Stag’ and ‘Stag Punishment’. You see where we’re going with this!
There’s just one decision you’ll need to make: which team will be the underdogs from Average Joe’s and who gets to don the black and purple jumpsuits of Globo Gym?
As a stag do destination, Leeds rocks. When you’ve done dodgeball, head off to one of the squillions of pubs for post-battle beers. You can’t turn a corner without running into a proper pub, craft beer pub, or trendy bar. They’re everywhere, from Brewery Wharf to Briggate, where you’ll find the legendary Whitelocks - king of old school boozers.
In a nutshell:
