You've seen it on the beach, you've passed it in the park, and now, it's time to play it for yourself: that's right, we're talking about Spikeball.

What is Spikeball?

Spikeball is a new-ish sport that refers to itself as "the love child between volleyball and four-square." It's played two-on-two with a taut hula hoop-sized Spikeball net placed between teams.

To play, teams spike the ball down on the net to ricochet it back to their opponents. Like volleyball, players have up to three hits between them to control the ball and bounce it back off the net. When the other team misses the ball, your team gets a point.

Spikeball first made headlines back in 2015 when it aired on "Shark Tank." While the deal ultimately fell through, the sport grew to become a multi-million dollar phenomenon with players from around the world.
