What is Spikeball?

Spikeball is 4v4 Volleyball for 1st and 2nd years with a difference. The main difference is that 2nd touch of the ball is a catch and a throw. This ensures more rallies, more opportunities to hit the ball and a lot more fun. Spikeball was developed to provide children with a FUN introduction to Volleyball. The main objective of SpikeBall is to encourage more children to participate in Volleyball in an enjoyable way.

Spikeball at National level

The SpikeBall National Championships were introduced at both Primary and Post Primary Level due to the increasing popularity of the game in schools and to meet the demand for competition.

November 2016

Spikeball is an initiative developed by the Volleyball Association of Ireland and is an adapted 4-player v 4-player volleyball game that was introduced to Ireland in the last 3 years and has seen participation levels increase by over 300%.
This year we had two 1st year girl teams and three 2nd year girl teams. Training takes place every Wednesday with numbers increasing every year. The first round of matches took place here in KTCS with Naas as the visiting team. There were some great matches with two teams in each year qualifying with fierce competition.
The 1st year team were lucky enough to qualify and will now compete in the regional finals. Best of luck to the girls as they get one step further to All Ireland Finals.
