WHAT IS SLAMBALL: Slamball, spikeball or roundnet is an absolute trend sport from the USA and is a bit similar to volleyball.
We played with 2 teams of 2 players each who line up in front of the round net (playing field). The cue ball is thrown or even smashed onto this net. Because translated Spikeball means «butterfly ball»
The aim is to let the ball bounce off the trampoline-like net so far that the opposing team does not manage to return the ball without it landing on the ground.
Similar to volleyball, a team is allowed three touches with the ball before it is played on the elastic net. As soon as the ball ricochets off the net, the opposing team must try to play the ball. This must always be played volley with the hands or other parts of the body, except the feet. The team that won 21 points first.
