FAQs

Can anyone participate?

Yes, all ages and skill levels are welcome!

Can I play in multiple divisions? 

Due to the format of the tournament, you may only play in one division.
 

Why is the event over multiple days?

We're running the Contender and Premier/Pro division as two day events. This allows us to remove some of the rush and exhaustion that is typical of our packed schedule in these divisions. Additionally, it lets us focus more attention Saturday on the championships happening in other division, allowing us to celebrate and spectate those matches like they deserve.

With Sunday focused on Contender and Premier/Pro it makes streaming a better, more predictable experience. It hopefully means players are rested and able to perform at their top level and opens the door for more storylines, speculation, and smack talk.

What are the rules? 

This tournament will follow the official SRA rules which can be found here.

What is the refund policy?

Event registration fees can be refunded as long as requests are made by May 17th, 2021. To request a refund, contact tournaments@spikeball.com. If the event needs to be canceled due to COVID19, we will provide full refunds to all teams.

Will COVID19 affect this tournament?

We will follow the situation closely and take the recommendations of local public health officials and the CDC. If the event needs to be canceled due to COVID19, we will provide full refunds to all teams. The structure and format may also be changed if necessary.

Thanks to our sponsors!
