Partnering with Utah Roundnet, Basin Recreation is excited to hold it's first Spikeball Tournament!
Sweeping the nation, Spikeball is a net sport inspired by volleyball but instead of hitting over a net, you hit the ball directly into one! If you’ve never played, you don’t know what you’re missing!
Tournament will consist of traditional pool play to determine seeding, with an elimination bracket to follow. Each team is guaranteed four or five games of pool play, plus two, “best of 3” matches, in bracket play.
Registration through Utah Roundnet is required.
