by Nurazleen Naquiah

Early last year, Malaysia Association of Dodgeball (MAD) has been recognized by people around Malaysia and this game has been picked up by teenagers around secondary schools and also colleges. MAD Dodgeball was promoting dodgeball at campuses as an alternative sport for youths. Since sports is very important for one, dodgeball gives youth a way to socialize and also at the same time have a fair fight in the game. The program was well accepted by all parties, youths, corporate clients and even the government. It has been a year plus and MAD are getting a lot of heat meaning many people are now knows what is MAD all about.

It has been 5 to 6 weeks Campus Dodgeball 2009 has kicked off and currently Segi Kota Damansara or the well known Barbarians are undefeated and leading the standings so far. They have beaten all the opponents with any average of 3 out 5 games ever since they started. Recently they have beaten KBU that was one of the strongest team in the dodgeball league by 3 games out of 5. It was a superb game played by both teams but in the end Segi Kota Damansara become the champions of the game. The next teams that Segi Kota Damansara Barbarians has to look out for Taylors PJ Hyenas team 1 and team 2. There are teams trailing behind Barbarians and if Segi Kota Damansara Barbarians wants to clinch the title they got to take out Hyenas Taylors or else it would be a difficult path for them to the championship. So people please do come to Cineleisure Mutiara Damansara to catch the Campus Dodgeball League 2009 (CDL).
