You can play dodgeball in the neighborhood at set times that can be checked by opening your phone while in the neighborhood (done by pressing cn_X) and then clicking the events app.

For now it seems the times are the same everyday 10:15 AM Eastern and 7:15 PM Eastern. If you aren't sure what that is in your timezone if you google the time (for example just google "10:15AM Eastern") it should convert it for you. These times may change in the future and you can check the times of the event by doing what I mentioned above. The game does not always start on the dot, sometimes it starts at 7:20 PM for example just wait it out and eventually you'll hear an announcement and a gate will open with a 5 minute countdown timer near the alley oops tattoo shop and the wheels store.

As far as winning it goes it's going to be some luck some skill for sure, the controls in this feel very wonky to me and I'd imagine they'd be even harder on a TV with high latency (although the game in general would naturally be harder on a TV with high latency, the controls in this mini-game specifically feel like they'd suffer). You can see the controls by pressing Y while waiting the 5 minute countdown but I'll also list them.
cn_RB to throw the ball
cn_LB to fake a throw
cn_Y to dodge / slide
cn_A to jump
cn_RT to sprint
Aim and look with the triggers as you'd expect.

The aiming isn't very well explained it's just a huge reticle that takes up like half your screen, try to center them in it and RB to throw it, generally I just spammed cn_Y if someone got near and they would usually miss. The main strategy I used to win my game was to hide beside the Ante Up facility and use the 3rd person camera to peek around the wall into the alley. You can't go onto the courts but you can enter certain alleys and the alley near the Ante Up facility is large and has room to move if someone else does go back there. I was able to hide there until around the 3 minute mark when everyone is forced to travel to the Iverson statue which is on the opposite side of the neighborhood. By the time I got there, there was only 3 other people left. I eliminated one as he was entering the area and time ran up for the other two to arrive so they were DQd and I won by that. Definitely a lot of luck playing into it. I feel like just hiding until the statue portion and then hoping for the best may be the right way to go for this.

When you win the achievement will pop and you'll be given a nice t-shirt along with a cool 25k VC. I won my second game of dodgeball, I'm not sure how much of it was luck honestly but I don't think this should be too difficult to nab if you play it every chance you get. I set a reminder / alarm on my phone 5 minute before the event starts because it's easy to get caught up in training or career games and miss out at which point you'll have to wait at least 9 hours for another chance.
