SPIKEBALL QUICK-FIRE TOURNAMENT • REGISTRATION ENDS FEB. 5
Spikeball Roundnet is similar to two-player volleyball, but instead of hitting a large ball over a suspended net, players hit a smaller ball into a circular net low to the ground. Teams can still take three touches at a time — for a bump, set, or spike — as in volleyball. The objective is also the same: hit a shot the other team can't return. A Quick-Fire Tournament is a chance to play games in a few hours rather than all day. Teams can consist of only two players. Divisions include competitive and recreation. Teams will play others closer to their skill level throughout the night depending on whether they win or lose. The competitive division plays by the official Spikeball Roundnet Association rules, while the recreation division focuses on developmental skills and is more relaxed on rules. Equipment is provided.

Ages 14+ • $30/team • Fri. • Feb. 7 • 6-9 p.m. • Stephen C. Beachy Central Park
