"This unique event promises to be one of the most popular draws of the year," said County Executive Brian Hughes. "I encourage everyone to get together with some friends and family, form a team and have some fun."
Professional dodgeball player Brett Batky of the New York Epic will be on hand as tournament director. Batky competed at the college level at The University of Mary Washington and The College of William and Mary, both renowned for producing high quality dodgeball players. As a competitor, he continues to refine a cadre of trick throws such as the “Double Dragon” and the “Look-Away.”
Patrick Ryan, Chairman of the Hopewell Valley Community Bank, a primary sponsor of the dodgeball event, said “This is a marvelous opportunity for local businesses to get their employees out of the stores, offices or shops to enjoy some exercise and have some fun.”
