Perfect for younger players or beginners, the Spikeball Rookie Kit features a 25% larger XL net (45” in diameter) than the standard kit, and an easy-to-spike 6.5” diameter ball. The wider frame and bigger ball allow players to practice the basic fundamentals of Spikeball without sacrificing any of the game’s fun and action.
Spikeball is one of the fastest growing, fully portable outdoor games in the country—taking the best elements of 2-on-2 volleyball and condensing it into a new, fast-paced, boundary-line-free sport. The Rookie Kit includes everything you need to get started, including a six-legged frame, XL net, one kid-safe Spikeball, a carrying bag, and an official Spikeball rulebook.
The rules of Spikeball, aka Roundnet, are borrowed from volleyball, with some twists akin to a full grown adult version of four-square. The game is 2-on-2, but players can move freely around the perimeter of the net, so long as they don’t impede the play of their opponents. Like traditional volleyball, teammates can only use two bumps/passes of the ball before spiking it back off the net, changing possession to the other team. The speed and quick reactions required to keep the ball moving create a perfect, high-energy sport for the beach, park, playground, etc.
Spikeball was invented and developed in the USA.
