Getting Started

Just bought your first Spikeball™ Kit?
Welcome to the SpikeFam! Here’s some tips to get started.

What's in the bag

5 legs

5 rims

1 net

1 ball (at least)

Build Rim Image

1. Build Rim

Connect all the legs and rim pieces in order to form a raised circle.

2. Attach Net

Connect the net in five equal points around the rim where each of the legs are.

Go around the rim and attach the rest of the net to fill in the gaps evenly with equal tension.

Insider Tip:
Aim to have all the net holes look like squares. If they’re diamond shaped, it means the net is being pulled too much in one direction. This will create inconsistent bounces during play.

3. Bounce Test

To check if you've done it correctly, drop a ball onto the net from eye level and if it bounces up to your waist, you’re good. If it bounces way below your waist, tighten the net.

4. GET SPIKING

Call your friends, neighbors, parents and get spiking!
