Temporary Closure

Green Lake pickup is on hiatus until April in order to repair the gym floors. We apologize for the inconvenience.


Green Lake dodgeball

The hottest new pickup game in the city is the Wednesday night open gym at Green Lake Community Center. The game attracts crowds of regulars and guests of all skill levels. It’s the only foam pickup dodgeball game in town and is a fantastic way to work on your game and meet great people.

Format

Participants are split into four teams at the beginning of the night. The playing court is the width of a basketball court with a neutral zone that is ten feet wide. Out of bounds are rarely enforced and there is an emphasis placed on dodging and catching. For the last 30 minutes of each night the two courts merge into one giant court, the full basketball court. Alternate rules are used to create a playful way to end the night. All games are played with 8.25″ Rhino Skin foam dodgeballs. Note: there is also loud music.
