Some people think dodge ball is a real sport vote and share your opinion.


I would like to thank CON for instigating this debate. I will be taking the PRO position, that Dodgeball is a sport. Let’s get going!

Main Argument

A sport is an activity that involves physical exertion, as well as competition between teams or individuals [1][2]. Dodgeball is a game where players try to hit opponents with balls, which eliminates them from the game [3][4]. Therefore it can be written:

P1: Sport = physical exertion + competition
P2: Dodgeball = game (competition) + throwing balls and dodging (physical exertions)
C: Therefore, Dodgeball is a sport

Side Note

There are also numerous organizations that exist for the purpose of regulating the sport of Dodgeball [5][6][7]. It is also regulated as a college sport by the National Collegiate Dodgeball Association [8].


I have demonstrated that Dodgeball is indeed a sport. I look forward to CON’s next round.



Debate Round No. 1

My opponant has failed to support the CON position, while I have demonstrated the PRO position. I thank CON for the opportunity to participate in this debate.
