Grab life by the ball! Londoners to tackle Wimbledon fancy dress dodgeball challenge and raise charity cash

Competitive Londoners are being invited to don outrageous fancy dress and block, run and hurl to victory at the UK’s biggest dodgeball tournament later this week.

Disability charity MENCAP is hosting the adrenaline-fuelled day at Wimbledon Park to bring fun-loving sporty types together and raise vital cash funds.

But it won’t be all blood, sweat and tears with London Beer Factory offering a free case of craft beers at registration and a variety of food stalls providing plenty of between-match grub.
