Chris Ruder, the creator, said Spikeball was a lawn game that lost speed in the 80s that he decided he wanted to revive. His idea first really started to gain traction when he brought the idea of it to Shark Tank. He ended up getting Daymond John to agree on a deal with them. Spikeball exponentially started to be noticed by players everywhere. Now you can often find Spikeball in most toy or sport stores, and can find it being played at most beaches.
