The date: Wednesday 20th May, 2015.
The Venue: the Futsal Indoor Arena, Birmingham
The task: to dip, dive, duck & most of all DODGE in the BTSS Dodgeball tournament.
The first event in the BTSS Inter-Firm Sports Trophy 2015, saw 19 firms pit their sporting wits against each other in the American import known mainly through the film-comedy that bore the name of this unique sport - Dodgeball.
After an intense pre-season training schedule(!), the Higgs & Sons players strode out into the arena ready to do battle.
The team threw themselves into each game, holding their own and beating teams from Irwin Mitchell and Trowers Hamlin, however when it came to playing eventual winners Browne Jacobson, the Higgs team couldn't quite overcome their determined opponents.
Despite not winning, a fantastic evening was had by all, and the following morning's aches and pains were testament to the Higgs team's efforts.
With the first event completed, the team are now looking forward to redeeming themselves at the next event - the IFST Football tournament in June... watch this space!
