[music] [Iain Speece] Spikeball is a game it’s a
team sport. [Frances Fuks] I guess if I had to guess, a mixture of like volleyball and dodgeball.
[Sue North] Maybe like dodgeball? [Hannah Morgan] It sounds a little bit like it would have throwing a ball at an object, at some kind of post or something. [Ray Dorsey] I think spikeball has to do with something like volleyball. [Luke Nash] I think it’s like, is it the one with the trampoline? Is it like the yellow thing? [Liz Sharer] It’s that game where you have like a
trampoline style net and people are like hitting a ball. It’s like volleyball into
a trampoline. [Frances] Oh my God, yeah. Is that what that is? [Hannah] Yes, that’s what spike ball is. I’ve seen
it, I just didn’t know what it was called. [Ben Emmerich] I would say it’s like volleyball with
the net on the ground and instead of going over the net, you hit the ball at
the net. [Iain] And then you kind of compete between two teams to see who can keep up
a volley longest. [Kevin Martinez] Actually sometimes, me and my brother take it to the beach and it’s
just the two of us. And then people come and they’re like ‘what is that?’ and then they play
and then they like it and then we make friends. [Ben] On campus people tend to know
what it is because it’s like, you know there’s a lot of people playing, but
sometimes like in the park and stuff and you get a lot of get a lot of funny
stares sometimes. [Eric Blackman] In most sports there is some physics lesson to be learned. There
are things about you know the direction that you hit the ball, how hard to hit
the ball, spin on the ball. I’ll have to see how they doing on exams. If the exam
scores improve after they play a spikeball. [laughs] [Frances} I feel like I’d be really bad at it. Or really good. I don’t know. Yes, I
guess I would like to learn how to play spikeball. [Eric] I have been tempted to
play and have not played it, but I yeah I would play. [Hannah] Never been tempted.
[Yawo Siatitse] Definitely. I like to try everything at least once. [Liz] I like Kanjam better. [Ray] I’d rather do frisbee. [Siobhan Plouffe] Definitely spikeball. I also can’t throw a
frisbee very well. [Sue] I’ll leave it to the students. They have more coordination. [Kevin] Oh yeah, yeah.
That’s my goal before I graduate. Everyone has to try spikeball once. [Luke] I
would rather play spikeball than study for my classes. [laughter] [Liz] Everything’s better than studying for finals.
