Spikeball — also known as roundnet — is an exciting game that incorporates volleyball-like rules with smaller teams and a low, round net.
It was created in the 1980s but didn’t really become popular until around 2008 when Chris Ruder decided to buy the expired trademark for $800 and create Spikeball Inc.
Today, there are more than four million Spikeball players around the world, and the Spikeball Roundnet Association holds regular tournaments across the U.S.
Fans and players rave about the sport’s intense matches, versatility, and friendly community of players and enthusiasts.
This sport calls for fun team names that suit its unique rules and enthusiastic players. Find our ideas for Spikeball team names below, or see our tips for creating your own name below the list.

How to Create a Great Spikeball Team Name
There are no rules for creating Spikeball team names; you can draw inspiration from the sport itself, from pop culture, or just from phrases you like.
As seen on our list above, you can also use puns and wordplay. The best team names will be those that get a laugh out of your teammates (or opponents!) and make you excited to play the game.
Keep the following tips in mind:
- Choose a short and fun name. Spikeball is an active, energetic game. Your team name should be short, snappy, and fun to reflect the vibe and pace of a Spikeball match.
- Choose a two-person name. A Spikeball team includes two players; you can use this to come up with a funny team name like our suggestion, “Bread and Butter.” For more ideas of this type, see our list of duo team names.
- Get inspiration from the game itself. The Spikeball Roundnet Association offers an official rulebook, which you should (of course) read before you play, but can also use for team name ideas. Many of the ideas on our list are inspired by the rulebook and equipment, like “It Has Pockets!” — a reference to the rim of the Spikeball net.
