ABOUT WILLIAMSBURG ROUNDNET
I founded Williamsburg Roundnet in January 2020, when I was a 16-year-old junior at Jamestown High School. After attending my first Spikeball tournament, hosted by Richmond Roundnet, I knew that I wanted to play more Spikeball. I went home that day and started Williamsburg Roundnet with one Instagram post about a pickup game the next weekend.
We started with a pickup consisting of four people, and Williamsburg Roundnet continued to grow every weekend. Pretty soon we hosted our first-ever tournament, Spike For The Cure, a fundraiser for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
That first tournament included 35 teams from all across Virginia and North Carolina, and raised nearly $3,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. We have committed to making the Spike For The Cure tournament an annual event, and we're excited to continue to support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Since then, we have hosted six additional tournaments. with 30-plus teams at each tournament.
These tournaments have included the second-largest independent tournament in Virginia, the VRA Championship, which had 44 teams in attendance. We have also supported the growth of Roundnet in younger age groups, sponsoring both the Jamestown and Lafayette High School Spikeball Clubs. Our support resulted in the first-ever High School Spikeball Tournament in our area, between Jamestown and Lafayette High School. We are excited to continue to grow the game of Roundnet throughout Williamsburg and beyond.
