Host a 2021 Sanctioned Event


We are excited to incorporate independent events into our tournament series! We think building a connection between these events will bring greater awareness to local communities and tournament directors and make becoming part of the competitive roundnet scene more accessible.

As the organizer, it will still be your event! You will run it and be responsible for execution from start to finish. There will be operational guidelines to ensure consistency and standards across events, but there will still be lots of room to make it your own and innovate.

  • Up to 20 independent events to earn Premier and points.
  • Teams can only earn premier from approved events
  • All events will take place after the start of the Tour Series (unless Spikeball otherwise approves events).
  • All events must follow safety protocols. If Spikeball deems events unsafe points/premier will not count.

What we're looking for

  • Experienced TDs with proven track record
  • Great venue and locations that expand the accessibility to high level competition  
  • Local communities that are active and on the rise
