In a few weeks, the student cup for roundnet will be held at Student Games(SG) Trondheim 2023.

Roundnet or spikeball has its origins in the United states.

It is a simple game consisting of two teams with two players each, a net and a ball.

The game starts with a player serving the ball down to the net, and then the opposing have the ball.

While the game is taking place, the ball must be bounced off the net towards the other team with a maximum of 3 touches. 

The aim is to give the other team a ball that they cannot control or cannot bounce back,

This causes the ball to fall to the ground.

If the ball falls to the ground after it has bounced off the net. Then points are awarded to the team that bounced the ball off the net last.


The sport was originally called roundet, but after a company called Spikeball started promoting the sport and selling equipment for the sport. Then the name spikeball have become equivalent with the word roundnet,
