Spikeball is a 2 vs 2 outdoor drinking game that requires hand eye coordination in order to spike a ball off a small trampoline or field balls hit the opponent.



Once you have your Spikeball game setup correctly, everyone grab an alcoholic beverage that you'll drink after each game (drinks are based on the outcome). Divide into teams of two and volley to determine who will serve first. Finally, each team pick a side to stand on during the serve.



Spikeball begins with someone serving the ball off the net towards the opposing team. The receiving team has up to 3 hits between them (no two consecutive hits by the same player) to return the ball by hitting it into the net towards the other team. This continues until one team is unable to return the ball, and scoring uses side-out scoring where you only get a point it you served the ball. Alternatively, you can forgo keeping score and assign drinks to the team that loses the round after they fail to return the ball.


There are two types of serves: the "GET IT IN PLAY" method which encourages longer games as the other team is able to return the serve easier than the alternative method, "BRING THE HURT" where you serve it has hard as possible in hopes for an easy point. Also keep in mind that after a serve, there are no longer "sides" so players can move anywhere - but don't be a dick about blocking the opposing team from the ball during a volley.


  • If your shot hits the rim it's known as a "Rimmer" and is side-out
  • If your shot hits a "pocket" between the net and rim no point is awarded and the round is done over
  • If the ball doesn't bounce off the net, the point is side-out
  • In order for the ball to be in play, after hitting the net, it must clear the rim. If it doesn't it is side-out.
  • Body shots are legal for the most part. You can't use your legs but if needed you can use the forearms and chest
