WHAT IS ROUNDNET?
Roundnet is a sport inspired by Volleyball. It has been around since 1989 and for a good number of years the sport had gradually lost popularity. By 2008, Spikeball Inc. created the spikeball set we know and love today and blew up the sport globally. Since then, Roundnet which is more commonly known as “spikeball”, has become a fun interactive sport. It consists of teams of two that can enjoy the game casually with a drink in their hand or as a competitive tournament style game that has all players diving to save the ball. The sport is simple, its a 2v2 game where you and your partner get up to 3 touches to return the ball onto the ’round net’ to score a point. The sport is played in sets, like Volleyball, and the winner is decided by the team that wins the most sets.
The best part about Roundnet is that It can be played on any terrain and any environment if the player is up for it. Checkout the Spikeball brand that makes the best equipment for the sport! For more information visit spikeball.com
