Spikeball

Spikeball is a growing sport in modern day America. It is a unique game that combines the swing of volleyball with the coordination of handball. When playing, there are teams of two both of which use great teamwork and individual skill in order to achieve victory. The goal of our organization is bring together students from all over campus to provide an opportunity to play Spikeball both with their peers from Binghamton and from other schools around the nation. Most Notably we will be competing with other colleges in pursuit of the National Champions title, while also providing students not looking to play competitively, a chance to play spikeball against other Binghamton University students.

The materials used in Spikeball include a small trampoline-like object with string netting, a small bouncing ball (usually yellow) with a 12-inch circumference, and four players. The object of the game is to hit the ball against the net so that the other team is not able to return it, or return it to hit the Spikeball net. The play continues until the ball is not returned properly.
