Roundnet is a sport that is played in teams with a ball and a circular bouncing net that looks like a trampoline. It is inspired by volleyball and is also known as Spikeball, which is actually the brand name of the manufacturer that popularized the sport. It is a simple and accessible sport that can be played anywhere, on grass, sand or gravel. Can we find a spikeball at Decathlon?

Decathlon Spikeball : Our review
The Schildkröt roundnet has been tested by families who have played games. The flow of a game is as follows. Two teams of two players play against each other. The main rule is not to drop the ball. The players are distributed around the net. One player hits the ball on the trampoline in the direction of his opponent. The opponent must return the ball. The point is in play until one of the teams cannot legally return the ball. Players are allowed to move as they wish during the game, but are not allowed to push their opponents or prevent them from playing. A point is awarded when the opponent drops the ball or makes a bad throw. The game ends when a team reaches the designated number of points.
The people who tested this kit found the game very entertaining and dynamic but sometimes found that the net strings were not tight enough to bounce the ball properly. So be sure to check before you start the game.
