How to take care of the Spikeball ball ?
Inflate the ball properly without damaging it
To make sure you inflate the Spikeball correctly and don’t damage it, moisten (e.g. with your mouth) the pump needle to insert it properly without micro-tearing. You can then blow into the needle with your mouth or with the pump provided in the Spikeball set. Please note that the ball should be inflated to the right size. That is to say neither too hard nor too soft.
Store the ball properly to no deform it
The plastic material of the Spikeball ball can be easily deformed by temperature variations. If you are traveling by plane or if the temperature of the room where your Spikeball set is stored is warm, we advise you to remove the air inside the ball. On the other hand, if the temperature is low and it is cold, the ball will tend to stiffen like a raisin, so we recommend that you do not deflate the ball in this case.
How to store your Spikeball net
Bending the legs of the Spikeball in the right conditions
To save time when setting up or storing your spikeball you can leave the net in place and only bend the legs. However, we do not recommend bending the feet if you are playing in sand or similar ground, as the joints can become clogged and eventually break. If you play on grass there is no problem.
Loosen your Spikeball net
If you keep the net attached to the frame when you store the spikeball set, we advise you to relax the net a little. If the net is continuously stretched, it can become distorted. So remove the net from a few hooks on each side of the frame and your net is safe.
