I have talked about how fun it was non stop to my husband
After first playing this game on a family reunion trip at the beach, I have talked about how fun it was non stop to my husband. So as soon as we planned our next friends trip to the beach I knew I was going to have to make this purchase. It arrived quickly and well packaged. It didn't disappoint. It is just as fun as I remembered. Volleyball meets basketball. I recommend this game for all ages and gatherings! Good times

More than a game
Spikeball is a backyard game on the outside, but incredibly fun and competitive when you really get down to it. I've been playing for over a year now, on both the west coast and east coast of America, and the game is fun for both beginners and the more experienced players. I can say some of the most fun summer memories I've had was going to the park everyday and just playing endless games of spikeball late into the night. The game is simple, described as something like four square and volleyball combined. The gist of it is that you have teams of twos and you have three hits between you and your partners to hit the ball onto the net.
-Fun and Competitive
-Great for all ages
-Easy to get into, but plenty of room to improve
-Community is great, nationwide tournaments, chances to go semi-pro, able to find spikeball players almost anywhere
-I've heard customer service is great, never had to use it, but friends have told me that Spikeball will replace any parts that are broken
-Not a "knockoff" brand, comes with 3 balls, the net, and a bag to carry everything in.
-A little pricey, but what you pay for is the community really. You pay more to be apart of the growing sport of spikeball and actually having the official set is important. I've gotten my money's worth because I use this set almost everyday with your friends, so I'd recommend getting the official set if you plan on using it almost on a daily basis.
-My spikeball bag did rip after a year of use, but that isn't too big of a deal. I just use another bag to carry everything in.
All in all, Spikeball is a great product and I highly recommend it. Honestly, it's just a great game to kill time with your friends doing something athletic.

Not what we expected. Poorly made.
I was so disappointed with this; I really wanted to love it. The concept it great; it just feels like the quality of materials were not worth the $50 we spent on it. The netting shredded on the edges as soon as we wrapped it around the bar to secure it. We couldn't get it tight enough to really make the ball bounce but didn't want to risk tearing it more. In reading the review, perhaps there is an upgrade version floating around. We were able to purchase a similar game at Target on clearance for $2.50 that was made of metal and a strong mesh that worked 10x better than this. Thankfully we tried it out before throwing the box away or leaving on vacation (where we'd planned to use it).

Fun for all ages and levels
First time Spikeballers and we are addicted!!! Fun for all ages and levels. We've played with 5 yrs old to 65 yrs old. Even a pregnant mom. Easy to take apart and pack up. We just ordered the ProBalls and the Glow in the dark Balls. Proballs are a little heavier and easy to control. Glow in the dark so the adults can play once the kids are in bed. GREAT GAME!!

Super fun game! Good for kids, teens and adults.
My kids really love playing Spikeball. It's fun for kids and adults. Get a few people together and play a game. It's a fun way to get moving and have fun. It's easy to set up and take apart. We only play it occasionally, mostly when we have company, but it would be a great family game too. It's simple to play and requires everyone to participate and move around. It would be a great game to play whenever you have a group of people and need activities for people to play.

Best outdoor game!
Heard about this game from a teen I know (I am 37) so I purchased it for my family. It is sooooo much fun!!! Be warned however that it is an aerobic workout! I have not had so much with my kids (16,17,19) for a very long time. Very easy to learn (5 min) and the game is fast paced with lots of ball time (not waiting around like in volleyball)....highly recommend this 4 person game!!!

Fun for all ages...but more fun if you're nimble
Super fun game. When my friends and I play, sometimes kids approach out of curiosity. We teach the kids to play and they love it. I've played it 1v1 with two-hit and three-hit variations, 2v2, and 3v3. Anyone can play, but for good competition, it helps to have athletic friends. After playing it for about a year, the net is stretched out somewhat, but you can always just pull it tighter.

Maybe it's me?
I gave it 5 stars because the product came as described. But beware, this game is not for little kids. I got it for my 10 year old to play with his buddies, and it's been hard for them to figure out. Even the adults have found it hard to get the hang of. It isn't quite as easy and fun and it seems like on the videos. Or maybe it's just us. haha!

So Addictive and Fun!
This game is so addictive! We love it because the entire family can play. We've already gotten friends and neighbors into it, and I'm sure it's going to end up being a Christmas/birthday present for friends and family in the coming months. The net feels a bit flimsy, like it would break or warp very easily, so we're trying to be careful, but the games can get a little competitive. That is my only concern - how long will it last? For the price, I wish it was a little more sturdy, but so far there haven't been any issues at all, and everyone loves it!

Great for the fire service too.
I am a Battalion chief in a busy fire department that also does paramedic ambulance service. I bought this game for the crews to use to "blow off steam" between calls and also as a team building exercise. This is a great game. Everyone that plays is instantly hooked and has a blast. It is very portable and easy to set up in an instant. Highly recommended for everyone. This is also a great form of cardio exercise when you dont feel like going on the treadmill.
