STS Reminders & Updates

European Premier Update

We have updated the format of our European Challenger events to improve competition based on the unique context. Specifically, we have removed the Premier division and all teams who want to prove they are the best will compete in Contender. Because there has been less opportunity to earn Premier in Europe, we want to make sure that top European teams get to compete for the top spots and prizes at this event. The top 8 teams that are not fully Premier will earn Premier. If 8 fully Premier teams participate then the event will earn full Challenger points towards the Spikeball Tour Series ranking. Premier points can only be earned by teams that also earn/have Premier. As this is the first year that the Spikeball Tour Series has events taking place in Europe, we think this change will yield better competition and more accurate results.

Tournament Cancellation/Weather Policy

Spikeball aims to provide a safe environment for its events. In general, we run events rain or shine. However, if for some reason we must cancel, postpone, or relocate an event due to uncontrollable weather conditions or other circumstances beyond our reasonable control, emails will be sent to all registered participants and announcements will be made on the event website and our social networking channels.

We will do everything within our power to make sure that events take place, but the safety of our participants is our number one concern. When registering for an event, you are accepting a small risk that uncontrollable circumstances might mean events need to be modified, postponed, or canceled. As such, no refunds will be given if a tournament is modified, postponed, or canceled for circumstances beyond Spikeball™’s reasonable control.

Coed Sunday

Coed has been CRUSHING it this year!! With the extra round (or two) of bracket play the tournament has been going until 4 or 5pm so please book your Sunday night flights with that in mind.

SAO Premier Qualifiers (formerly known as Sanctioned events)

The top 3 non-Premier teams at each event will earn Premier status and will be able to compete in the Premier 5.0 division of the Spikeball Tour Series
