SPIKEBALL is an initiative developed by the Volleyball Association of Ireland to aid School Teachers in introducing Junior Volleyball to their students. Volleyball has traditionally been viewed as a difficult sport to introduce to young children, but it doesn’t have to be. SPIKEBALL is an adapted 4-player v 4-player volleyball game that was introduced to Ireland in the last 3 years and has seen participation levels increase by over 300%.




Three teams took part in the recent Spikeball competition in Clonmel. Pupils worked extremely hard all day in match after match but unfortunately we didn’t make it any further in the competition this year.  All pupils enjoyed participating in this sport.
