Exactly 2,136 members of the Rochester Institute of Technology’s community hit their target on May 1, 2011, when they took aim at setting the Guinness world record for the largest game of dodgeball in history.
The event was organized by members of RIT’s dodgeball club and Phi Kappa Psi fraternity and took place at RIT’s Gordon Field House and Activities Center.
The game, which featured two teams wearing RIT’s colors of orange and brown, took nearly two hours. At the end, about 30 players were still standing for the victorious orange team.
The school beat the previous record of 2,012 players held by the University of Alberta in Canada.
