Lunchtime city dodgeball player Devrim Van Dijk recently covered himself in glory at world championships, but the real action is here at Flagstaff Gardens.
Mr Van Dijk represented Australia and won bronze in Canada. But he is also a member of Simply Energy, which will contest a grand final on November 29.
Simply Energy has been playing in the competition every Wednesday for five seasons.
Mr Van Dijk said: “We always look forward to Wednesdays, because it’s dodgeball day. There’s definitely a trusting team chemistry that has developed over this time. We work well together both in the board room and on the dodgeball courts and we haven’t looked back since we started!”
Simply Energy are confident that they will make the upcoming grand final, which will be held at Flagstaff Gardens courts on November 29 at 1pm.
Mr Van Dijk said: “This season we’re going for the win with the goal to set the record straight!”
