Cheers and screams split the air at the indoor sports hall of Beatty Secondary School on June 25. Youth in the zone under Goh Yock Kiang’s pastoral care were embroiled in a friendly, but heated, dodgeball tournament, dodging and throwing balls at cracking speeds.
The fun-filled outreach event featured 15 six-player teams, with a total of more than 120 players and supporters. Meant as a time for youth members to interact with one another, as well as their friends who had come for the zone’s youth camp, the dodgeball match was a thrilling one, with the top three teams walking away with prizes.
“This outreach was a success,” said organizer Pauline Kong. “Many of the youth who attended the youth camp came back, and we had 10 youth cell groups organizing and attending the tournament.”
Smiles all around were testament to the good time the sporting players and their supporters had.
