The number One question I am asked is "how do you run Blacklight dodgeball"
Here are my thoughts on how we did it...
You need to blackout the room pretty well, so it will be tricky to tell who was hit (even if people are wearing white) so just be aware of that as you go into it - it will be more about the experience than the competition!!
We purchased white dodge balls but they didn’t reflect the UV too well so we sprayed them with neon paint which worked brilliantly - orange and pink seemed to be the best. Then we sprayed some painters overalls for the judges to wear.
I rented the black lights from http://www.blankextremeentertainment.com/ they are super helpful and can advise how many you'll need, at the time they charged $100 each.
They mail the lights to you a day or so prior to your event and then you mail them back in the same boxes etc. I paid for prepaid shipping labels (around $10 per unit) so the day after all I had to was stick the label on and Fedex them back.
Crank up the music, add a few siren lights or whatever strange lighting effects you have lying around from the last smoothie bar event you ran and that's it.
Super fun game to run in the middle of the night at camp!!
