The King of Dodgeball
The Cup is in honour of a founder of the UK Dodgeball Association (UKDBA) and dear friend of the Manchester Bees, Nick Pinnock. As Director of Adult Competitions, Nick transformed the adult dodgeball community in the UK, overseeing the introduction of the Dodgeball Premier League (DPL) and National Leagues, as well as both the British and European Championships. The Nick Pinnock Cup debuts this year and will be held annually in memory of the outstanding contribution Nick made to the sport.
Fancy coming along to the Triple Header to check out the buzz? The tournament will run from 4pm on Saturday 4 February 2017 at Manchester Academy School, M14 4PX. Find out more on our Facebook Event page and let us know you’ll be there!
