Spikeball: The Game That's Getting Kids Off Their Phones

In an age dominated by screens, where kids and teenagers are often engrossed in smartphones, tablets, and gaming consoles, there's a refreshing game that's making waves – Spikeball. This addictive new sport (the sport is actually called 'roundnet') is pulling people away from the screens and encouraging face-to-face, active play.

What is Spikeball?

Ever seen that black and yellow trampoline game in the park or beach? Yeah that's Spikeball. It's kind of like the love child between volleyball and four-square. The game is played in teams of 2 with a small, round net placed on the ground. Players have up to three touches per team to get the ball back on to the net (think bump, set, spike). The best bit is there are no sides or boundaries! Yep, it's 360 degrees, baby.

More than a game

Spikeball isn't just a game; it's a growing community. Enthusiasts connect at local parks, beaches, and schools, fostering real-world relationships based on a shared love for the sport! People have even made life-long friends or fallen in love through Spikeball (just check out this article!)

Tournaments

Roundnet tournaments have gained popularity over the past 10 years, with players competing in local, regional, national and even global events. These tournaments not only provide a platform for competition but also foster life long friendships.

If you're looking for a way to get your kids to hang up and hang out, maybe Spikeball could be the solution...
