If you’ve taken a trip to the beach, walked across a college campus, or been to a public park in the last few years, you’ve probably seen spikeball in action. The game includes a circular net and ball.
The object of the game is to hit the ball against the net so that the other team cannot return the hit + traditionally, spikeball is played with 2 teams of 2. Check out a how-to video here + official tournament rules here.
