Spike Ball

The Rules

This game is played with 4 players, up to 6 for beginners

 

1) The sport of roundnet is played 2 vs 2, with a hoola hoop sized Spikeball net placed between the teams. 

2) A player starts a point by serving the ball down on the net so it ricochets up at his opponents. They have up to three hits between them (just like Volleyball) to control the ball and bounce it back off the net. When they miss, you score.  

3) Did we mention that there are no boundaries? Once a point starts, players can move or hit the ball anywhere. 

 

When you are first learning you might play with what you would call a “Gentlemen Serve”, where in the server hits it with good height to the opposing team, with the goal of getting the point successfully started.  When receiving a serve, the player must pass the ball to their teammate before spiking on the net.
