The 2023 application window is now open until the 15th of January.
Spikeball Ambassador Organizations
What's the Goal?
The sport of roundnet is growing like crazy and we wouldn't be here without the continuous hard work and dedication from our community. We're here to support organizations that reflect our mission and core values, and who continue to be great ambassadors of both roundnet and the Spikeball brand.
What's Included in 2023?
Support to keep your communities engaged
You'll get to display the official SAO badge, get the steepest discounts on our products to stock up for your organization, and get priority on partnering together on opportunities. Further, we're working on Fwango updates that will highlight events hosted by SAOs.
