FAQs:

How do I get paid for playing in a sanctioned event?
All payments (prizes or stipends) will be processed through Bill.com. Many of you already have an account setup. We are no longer doing paper checks and are only paying through direct deposit. Therefore, you MUST have a bank account attached to your account or the payment cannot be processed. If you have any questions about your Bill.com account please email nora@spikeball.com.
 
How do I use my stipends?
Spikeball will reimburse your expenses. Email receipts to tournaments@spikeball.com and include any contextual info in the body of the email.
