Animal onesies at the ready - there's less than a month to go before the nation's biggest fancy dress dodgeball tournament comes to a park near you.

Hosted by learning disability charity Mencap, Wimbledon Park will welcome teams from all over London to take part in the competitive event on Saturday, September 6.

This Is Local London:

Teams of eight play at least seven games and prizes are awarded to the winning and best-dressed teams - which is fiercely contested.

The sell-out event attracted 1,000 people last year, with an auction, music and food and craft beer stalls set up to entertain spectators and participants throughout the day.

Sponsored by The London Beer Factory, every team that enters will receive a free case of beer and entry to an official after party.

Mencap is a UK charity which works to support people with learning disabilities, their families and carers by fighting to change laws, improve services and access to education, employment and leisure facilities.

Mencap's Team Dodgeball Championships 2014; Wimbledon Park; Saturday, September 6, 11am till late; £30 per person; to register, visit mencap.org.uk/dodgeball

There is nothing that nauseating man would not do for publicity.
