Best Physical Products to Buy: Spikeball

Spikeball is a hobby that I have taken up during my time at home. I have seen it before on TV, and they were even showing it for a bit on ESPN during the coronavirus lockdown. There are also a lot of highlight reels that are on the Internet, and some of the top Spikeball players have some amazing skills.

At first, I didn’t understand the appeal of Spikeball, but after playing it I realized that it is a ton of fun. It seems like such as simple sport to play, but there are actually a lot of tactics and strategy involved as well. However, it is also a game that you can start at a pretty high level from; this makes it enjoyable to play even if you have never played it before (as long as you have decent eye-hand coordination skills).

Also, it is a great game to play no matter where you are; you just have to bring the set (the setup time is only 5 minutes or so), and find a flat place to play. I normally play it at the park with my friends, but you can also play it at the beach, in your yard, etc.

Another thing a lot of people probably don’t realize about Spikeball (myself included before), is that it is extremely good exercise. I played for 2 hours the first time I played (I played like 12 games to 21 or so), and by the end of it I was really sore and out of breath. The muscles that were sore for me after playing were my hamstrings and forearms. I would say the physical exertion required is similar to that of tennis or half-court basketball, so it is not going to be an easy workout if you play.
