Roundnet, one of the fastest-growing sports in America, is a strategic 360° ball game played by teams of two that is perfect for both competitive and casual players. If you are looking to join a new sport that you can advance quickly at then you are in the right place! With sessions three times a week, we aim for members to become proficient in Roundnet Spikeball so that they can play with friends or progress to tournaments if they want to give it a go. We also host socials every two weeks in varying locations with unique themes. On top of all of this membership is completely free. We are looking forward to meeting you and having some games, Stay Spikey!



Welcome to Southampton Squids - the oldest university Roundnet club in the UK!

Game Play

Opposing teams line up across from each other with the Roundnet/Spikeball set in the centre. Once the ball is served, the players can move anywhere they want - there are no sides and no boundaries! The objective of the game is to hit the ball onto the net so that the opposing team can't return it, the rally continues until the ball is not returned to the net. 

Here's a quick video further detailing gameplay: 

The 2021 season has a rule update that really spices things up! Watch an explanation of the new rules here:
