A team of exactly 2,012 members consisting of staff and students of University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada, took to an indoor field at the University campus on February 4, to reclaim the record for the world's largest dodge-ball game.

Earlier, the Edmonton-based institution set the record when nearly 1,200 students took part in a game last February. But that record was broken in September by nearly 1,800 University of California Irvine students. This week, the Edmonton team snatched it back. The Guinness World Record for most players in a single dodge-ball game was played with over 1,000 balls.
