How to Play: An official Spikeball set includes a trampoline-looking net and one yellow ball. Grab four guys. Set the net on the ground and have each player stand equidistant around the net, similar to four square. A player from Team 1 will serve the ball by spiking it down into the net, and Team 2 will have three touches to smash the ball back into the net towards Team 1. The rally continues in this way. Failure to cleanly send back the ball results in a point for the other team. Players have no confined area, and there is no limit on how hard you can spike the ball. Games are to 21, win by 2.
Why It's Awesome: This is the game beaches and backyards are made for. Offering the athletic satisfaction of volleyball, without the hassle of assembling a large team or finding a net, Spikeball is portable, simple, and fun. It's no wonder that this latest viral hit recently received a huge investment from Shark Tank.
