Last weekend SAVAGE spent four days in Las Vegas as the official merchandiser of Sky Zone’s 2016 Ultimate Dodgeball Championship. The tournament brought together the top 53 trampoline dodgeball teams from three different countries to compete for a grand prize of $50,000. Not only did SAVAGE set up a booth and sell apparel, we also provided staff polos and referee jerseys.
Unfamiliar with the sport? Take gym class dodgeball and mix it with elite athletes, then go ahead and add floors and walls made entirely of trampolines. These ingredients combine to make one exciting sport for both the players and the spectators.
The first two days of the tournament consisted of round robin play to establish seeding. The third day began the start of bracket play. Early Sunday morning, the final day of the tournament, the top eight teams received full sublimation SAVAGE jerseys to play in. While all the teams fought extremely hard, the championship went to DOOM for the second year in a row.
Congratulations to all the qualifying teams. SAVAGE can’t wait to see you all in Vegas again next year!
