Deron Williams Celebrity Dodge Barrage 2016
A favorite childhood game, dodgeball gets wild, woolly, and goofy when the grownups take over. NBA All-Star, Olympic Gold Medalist, and Dallas Mavericks point guard Deron Williams is inviting North Texans 18 and older to sign up and show off their mad dodge-baller skills, or come watch his Celebrity Dodge Barrage.
Amateur and celebrity teams including Williams, his Dallas Maverick teammates, and other NBA players will compete in the round-robin-style dodgeball tournament, which is presented by Morgan Stanley. Players will compete for the Championship Trophy and other awards, including Best Use of Spandex Award, Dip, Duck and Dive Award, Biggest Bruiser Award, Best Baller Award, and Most Likely to Take Up Another Sport Award. MavsMan and Champ, the Mavs ManiAACs and the Dallas Mavericks Dancers will be on tap to cheer on the players. Teams must wear uniforms and are encouraged to get creative.
Only 64 teams are permitted and 1,000 spectator tickets remain. Registration is $500 per team, which consists of 10 players ($50 per person – eight players on the court with two substitutes). Players must be at least 18 years of age. Deadline to register is August 29.
Proceeds from the event benefit Williams' Points of Hope Foundation, which supports autism awareness, education, and research.
