Think you’ve still got your dodgeball skills? Or would you get handed a stinging, finger-jamming defeat?

Now’s the time to find out, but you’d better hurry.

There are spots open for eight teams to join Cobb County's first spring co-ed dodgeball league.

“We’re always looking to bring new activities to Cobb to give the public more,” said Brody Whitlock, recreation coordinator with the county’s parks department.

It’s $150 per team of four male and two female dodgeballers. The fee pays for referees, balls and what it takes to put a league together.

A six-on-six showdown of folks age 16 and above will sling middle school memories at each other for 4 hours on a Wednesday night.

That scene of high-level athleticism will repeat seven times from March 8 to May 17 at the Fullers Recreation Center, 3499 Robinson Road in Marietta.

There will also be a post-season tournament in which the winner and runner-up teams will receive trophies and T-shirts.

Teams can register online until Feb. 28.

Whitlock is hoping for four teams.

“The first year, you’re trying to get the word out there,” he said. “We’re hoping to catch on.”
