Save The Date – 10 December 2017: The Manchester Christmas Cup!

It’s that time of year again, and what would be better in the run-up to Christmas, than taking a time-out from all the Christmas shopping in town for a festive day of dodgeball with Manchester  Bees?!

On Sunday, 10 December 2017, Manchester Bees Dodgeball will be hosting the Christmas Cup, suitable for all ages and taking place at Manchester’s Active Lifestyle Centre from 12pm.

The event will include a variety of brilliant games and activities, and whilst fixtures are to be confirmed, a number of teams are vying to get involved, as well as a number of Junior fixtures featuring teams from six of Mr Dodgeball’s regional clubs:


Altrincham Dodgers          –          Avondale Avalanche          –          Burnage Bruins

Horwich Heat          –          Handforth Hawks          –          Heaton Hurricanes

Players from the Manchester Bees Academy will also be jumping in and getting involved in the festive fun after a brilliant launch earlier this year!

In addition, various women’s games will also be taking place, featuring Kingsway Queens, Wilmslow Wasps, MUDs Majesties and our very own Queen and Honey Bees!

These girls certainly can!
