Roundnet is a team sport played with Spikeball® equipment sets. Teams of two work together and are allowed three touches to return the ball onto the net. Once the ball is played off the net, possession switches to the opposing team. The object of the game is to hit the ball off the net in such a way that the opposing team cannot successfully return it.

The Roundnet High School Module is designed to introduce the sport to new players while helping experienced players continue to develop their skills.
