What if beach volleyball and four square had a baby? Spikeball is
the incredible offspring of these sports. On June 29, Coney Island will
be home to New York's largest Spikeball tournament.
Like volleyball, teams of two have up to three hits to get the
softball-sized ball back to their opponents. Instead of hitting the ball
over a net, teams must bounce the ball off a springy circular net on
the ground. You can spike the ball as hard or as soft as you want and
once play starts teams can move 360 degrees around the net.
On June 29, teams from all across the country will compete to
see who is the best. Summer Spike, hosted at Coney Island, will be New
York's largest Spikeball tournament. There are both casual and
competitive divisions to suit all skill levels. Registration is $40 per
team. Sign up at www.spikeballnyc.com to be part of this record breaking event.
