WPS Takes The Dodgeball Cup Twice In A Row
The GEMS Sports Series held it's very first event of the academic year 2018-2019, the GEMS Dodgeball Cup. Just like last year, the Dodgeball Cup was open to all PE Staff & Technical Partners of GSS. The aim of the tournament was for everyone to get to know each other over a few friendly matches.
The tournament was held on Tuesday 2nd October 2018 at the GEMS Wellington Academy, Al Khail. It kicked off with five strong teams namely, ESM, GEMS United School (GUS), Wellington Primary School (WPS), and two teams from Dubai American Academy (DAA1 & DAA2).
DAA 1 easily made their way to the top of the scoreboard, beating all their competitors followed by WPS who was the second team to make it to the semifinals, then GUS & ESM.
The semi-finals were highly contested matches with ESM vs DAA1 and WPS vs GUS. The five-minute games ended with a surprising twist when ESM & WPS made it to the finals.
After a highly contended match WPS claimed victory, making them the champions of the GEMS Dodgeball Cup for the second time in a row!
Our warm gratitude reaches out to all the teams for their enthusiastic participation and continuous support.
