Spikeball is a trendy new game sweeping the United States. The concept is simple, but play can evolve to something pretty high level. All you need to play is a spikeball kit, which contains a collapsible net and two balls. Official play is two against two, but casual games can add many more players.
Basic gameplay works like this. The horizontal net acts somewhat like a trampoline, and it’s the “spiking” surface that acts as the transfer between teams. After the serve, a team has up to three hits (just like volleyball) to return the ball to the other team by spiking it onto the trampoline-like net. If a team can’t return the ball within three hits (or if the ball hits the ground), the other team scores a point.
Spikeball is great fun just about anywhere outdoors. It can be played on grass, dirt or sand.
Kan Jam is a simple game involving a Frisbee and two goals that look a little bit like trashcans. Teams of two attempt to get a Frisbee into the opposing team’s kan. Hitting the kan is worth 1 or 2 points, while making it in the kan is worth 3. Kan Jam has football, water, and iridescent variants.
