With the first day of spring out of the way, we can start to get ready for a bit less snow and a bit more sun!
If you’re feeling fit, healthy and ready for spring, we have the perfect client of the month for you. We caught up with Mo Islam, chief executive of the UK Dodgeball Association, to find out more about what they do and how you can get involved.
Tell us about the UK Dodgeball Association (UKDBA)
The UK Dodgeball Association is the officially recognised national governing body of dodgeball, a title we’ve held since 2012. The association is responsible for promoting, organising and developing dodgeball in the UK from ‘grass roots’ to the elite level.
What drove you to start UKDBA?
I believe that there are many health and social benefits to playing sport and every person should be afforded the opportunity to do so. Everyone from children as young as pre-school up to adults of retirement age and beyond can play dodgeball. It is very simple to learn and everyone has the ability to get involved as part of a team.
What kind of support do you offer those looking to join?
Through education and training, support and expertise we aim to ensure there is an excellent participation environment for players at schools, colleges, universities and clubs in the community. We believe that dodgeball is an extremely inclusive sport and that it creates an opportunity for all sporting abilities to be involved.
Why did you choose The Accountancy Partnership?

Their whole team place customer satisfaction at the top of their agenda and have all of the knowledge you could ever need for starting or running a business.

Would you recommend The Accountancy Partnership?
I couldn’t recommend The Accountancy Partnership enough as the perfect support for your new/existing venture or as an alternative with an extremely approachable and professional manner.
What do you have planned for UKDBA in the future?
Dodgeball is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK and we’re always looking for new members to get involved. There are plenty of health and social benefits not to mention it’s an addictive sport once you start playing!
We are now, more than ever before, able to support all four home countries in the UK to develop not only at home but as part of the ever expanding international game. Our determination to succeed has seen the UKDBA quickly become the internationally leading governing body and model for dodgeball development around the world.
