SIXTH ANNUAL DODGEBRAWL TOURNAMENT CREATES COMPETITION FOR A CAUSE

(Tulsa, Okla.) March 23, 2017 – Get your sweatbands and kneepads ready – the sixth annual Dodgebrawl Tournament presented by Paul Transportation returns to BOK Center on May 13, 2017. This one-day dodge ball tournament sets teams to compete for the charity/non profit of their choice with each winning team’s selected charity/nonprofit receiving a financial donation on behalf of the tournament.

“Dodgebrawl is an event that brings the kid out in everyone,” said Jeff Nickler, SMG Tulsa General Manager. “People from across the region enjoy this opportunity to have a good time while supporting local charities and nonprofits.”

Dodgebrawl started in July of 2012 with 50 participating teams and it has grown to a 64-team tournament. As the event grows bigger and better each year, it has become a staple for the Tulsa community. Admission to Dodgebrawl is free and all are welcome to attend and cheer on their favorite team during the tournament.

64 teams of six gather on May 13 at BOK Center. Each team will be guaranteed three games – one warm-up game and then two games (or more) in a double-elimination bracket. At the end of the day, prizes will be awarded to the selected charities/nonprofits of the top three teams. Prizes will also be awarded to teams with the best team name and best team uniform. Anyone interested in playing in the tournament can register at www.tulsadodgebrawl.com.
