Walking down the memory lane, I remember being an active kid back in the days when I was in primary school. Every evening I will be seen playing outside with my neighbours and siblings like all carefree children would. Ranging from bicycle racing, exploring empty houses that were deemed spooky, climbing trees, playing rounders (something like baseball) and even the simpler version of game like bola beracun. I remember hiding behind someone just to evade the ball and to play longer, those were the good ol’ days J
Today the memories of my childhood game resurfaced again with a different name, dodgeball and it has been recognized around the globe with tournaments and teams of amateur and professional leagues. There was even a movie Dodgeball in 2004 and in Malaysia itself, dodgeball game has made it to the list of 10 alternative sports played in Malaysia. You can check out the trailer below if you have no idea what and how dodgeball works :
