Dodgeball is usually played in elementary school gym class. On Saturday, however, it will be played at the Student Recreation and Wellness Center on Kent State’s campus. Sigma Phi Epsilon is hosting its third annual dodgeball tournament philanthropy event.

There are 16 teams registered for the tournament. Most of the teams are Greek, but there are also “non-Greek students” who have set up teams, said Ricky Bortz, sophomore business management major.

Bortz said local businesses have donated gift baskets that will be awarded to the winning teams.

Each team is required to pay a $30 participation fee. The money from these fees, as well as other donations, will benefit the Humane Society of Greater Akron. The Humane Society provides protection against abused and neglected animals.

The event will take place from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Rec.
