So what is spikeball?
Spikeball is a modified version of 2 on 2 volleyball created in 1989. Players line up next to each other around a Spikeball net, with the opposing teams lined up directly across from each other. The object of the game is to hit the ball against the net so that the other team is not able to return it or return it to hit the Spikeball net. Play continues until the ball is not returned properly. The game is a combination of volleyball, table tennis and trampoline.
USA Spikeball is the governing body for organizing tournaments, recording scores and rankings. Teams earn a certain number of points based upon their performance at each tournament and the tournament size. There are four regions (East, Southeast, Midwest and West) with four stops on the tour and the regional tournament. The national tournament is hosted in October.
The Chico Spikes from Chico, California are currently the top-ranked team in the USA Spikeball Power Rankings.
