spikeballChris Ruder, along with his Spikeball team, show the Sharks the next great American game in Shark Tank episode 623 – the season six finale. Spikeball is a 2-on-2, beach volleyball type game. The “net” is actually a round, trampoline-like disc that opponents spike the ball off for the opposing team to hit and return.

Like volleyball, teams have three touches before returning, or spiking, the ball back to the other team. Unlike volleyball, there are no boundaries. The company website describes the game as “kinda sorta like volleyball and foursquare but on steroids.”

Spikeball isn’t a new thing, it’s been around for over 7 years. There are over a quarter million players and 1000 plus ranked teams. Tournaments are organized by USA Spikeball and there are regional and national championships each “season.” The game is perfect for the beach and can be enjoyed by young and old alike. The complete set is available at Amazon and on the company website.

Chris is likely looking for a Shark to help with expanding the game as a sport via sponsored venues and for help with mass market awareness and distribution. Can Mr. Ruder spike a Shark and net an investment?

Spikeball Shark Tank Recap

Chris and the his team will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. They’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Lori Grenier, Kevin O’Leary, Daymond John, and Nick Woodman that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but they’ll need to show them THEY are capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on Spikeball will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
