Product Review: Spikeball

Product Review: Spikeball

Looking for a perfect summer game? Spikeball is the best game that has ever been invented. It is cost-friendly, easy to set up, fast-paced, and a great game to play with friends. It is a tiny trampoline that you have to hit with a baseball-sized dodge ball. You have one teammate and the goal is to make it to 21 points with rules similar to volleyball.

Firstly, it is cheap and easy to set up. Spikeball sets are around $50 to buy a new set with multiple balls and can also fit in a backpack wearable satchel. Being able to carry it around in a lightweight bag that you could fit anywhere makes it easy to love the game. You can set it up anywhere on any flat ground, it takes 14 pieces to put together and set up then you’re done. 

It is a fast-paced game that can be played anywhere. The game is played to 21 and each volley can be anywhere from 3 seconds to 40 seconds. The games don’t last longer than 15 minutes if you move fast. 

It is also a game where you have to have fast reflexes. Diving is often a part of every volley and running around crazy to help your teammate. 

Spikeball in general is just a super fun game to play with your friends. Passing is a part of every game but especially in spikeball, setting up your teammates with a good pass is a crucial but also a hard part. Yelling at your teammates out of the fun because of a bad pass or missed spike is a part of the enjoyment of playing Spikeball. Along with having fun with your teammates, your opponents also are a part of the fun as you are trying to get each other to lose a point with a healthy competition. 

Spike ball is most fun on some nice turf or sand on a hot and sunny day. It is a perfect game to play this summer!

    I LOVE how you went into the details. I was thinking about buying one of these because all of my friends keep talking about it. After reading your “Product review” I think I’m going to invest and try it out.
