Frequently Asked Questions
Spikeball is the name of the sporting brand that produces Spikeball kits for playing Roundnet. Roundnet is the next great sport that is taking off all around the world. Most similar to beach volleyball with two players on each team however instead of hitting over the net, you "spike" the ball onto the net in a way that makes it difficult (or better, impossible) for the opposition to return. After the serve bounces off the net there are no boundaries in this 360 degree exhilirating new sport.

Setting up your new Spikeball kit isn't too hard at all, especially with our tutorial which will also help you work out how much tension you want on net for the best gameplay.
Check out our SpikeSchool for a clip on how to set up your Spikeball kit as well as heaps of other cool tutorials.
Two players on each team set up on opposite sides of the Spikeball net. After the serve hits the net there are no sides or boundaries. Each team has up to three hits to successfully return the ball onto the net in a way that it cleanly bounces off without hitting the frame or bouncing twice. The aim is to spike the ball onto the net in a way that the opposition cannot sucecsfully return it. Games are played to 21 but you can play to whatever you like. Pretty soon your serves will be faster, your rallies will be longer and your spikes hard to return! Visit spikeballaustralia.com.au for instructional videos and handy tips to improve your game.
At tournaments we use Spikeball Pro kits to play Roundnet with four players (two teams of two). There are heaps of modifcations to the game though so you can play with two, three, four, six or even more!
Spikeball kits are so portable you can take them anywhere. You can play Roundnet using your Spikeball kit everywhere from the beach, on grass to indoor court surfaces. You can see on social media that people have played on the snow, on water (using the Spikebuoy) and for an exciting variation on a squash court - walls included!
We want to introduce as many students to the sport of Roundnet as possible, so we are really keen to assist schools to get their own Spikeball kits. Schools, universities and TAFE colleges qualify for our Education Partner Advantage and can receive additional equipment free of charge as well as access to our Roundnet Curriculum and Activity Guide for Australian Schools.
