Spikeball is an epic game played by 2 – 6 people. It is fun, skilful and can be a great cardio work out. Some people explain Spikeball as upside-down volleyball as it has some very similar rules, however where volleyball uses a freestanding net, Spikeball uses a circular ring net placed on the ground. Players hit the ball into the next at the end of their “turn” which causes the ball to rebound off the net and continue with play.

The beauty of a Spikeball set is that it is extremely compact and easy to travel with, or just walk to the beach or slip into your bag before you leave on holiday. It is also a great Christmas or birthday present. Spikeball is also arguably easier to play and pick up than volleyball which requires a bit more practice and understanding.
Spikeball has become a serious sport in its own right with impressive athletes that amaze onlookers with their skill, aim and endurance.
