You probably remember the movie, Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, starring Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller.  It was a rather silly movie about a couple of misfits entering a dodgeball tournament to save their local gym from being taken over by a corporate fitness chain.

Well, it turns out, that game you used to play in gym class, that you either hated, or absolutely loved, (depending on how good you were... or weren't), has gained a resurgence in popularity.  In fact, dodgeball tournaments are popping up all over the country.  And you can participate in one coming to Texarkana in a couple of weeks.

The Sportsplex by HealthCARE Express and Xcelerate Athletix in Texarkana are partnering to present a Dodgeball Tournament open to teams or individuals.
