A guest post by Thomas Summers, volunteer Young Life leader in Williamson County, TN and the General Manager for USA Spikeball. 

As most of you know, Spikeball has become quite popular in the Young Life Community, as a contact work tool, a club activity, and a Campaigners tradition. Most of our Young Life camps have multiple sets onsite for kids and leaders to play.

If you've never played, just imagine what would happen if volleyball and 4-square had a baby...that's Spikeball.

My first interaction with Spikeball was at a Young Life leadership retreat for Williamson Co. leaders in 2012. As I approached the lake house I saw this magical, round, hula-hoop sized net sitting just off the ground. I couldn’t stop watching as my friends spiked the ball off the net, sending it 15 feet up in the air. At first, I literally had no idea what was going on, but the rest is history. Eve Sarrett gave me her Spikeball set as a gift, and I soon formed the Nashville Spikeball League. I started running a few Spikeball tournaments and now it has become my career. 

Our goal at Spikeball is to make Spikeball the next great American sport. What’s awesome is that Young Life has been such a huge part of that from the beginning.
  
Want to get your hands on a free set or purchase one at a discounted rate? Keep your eyes on Instagram, Twitter, and YoungLifeLeaders.org for the next 12 days! Merry Christmas from the guys at Spikeball!!!
