Spikeball is a sport that is played in Clontuskert. We play it from 3rd class to 6th class. Spikeball is a modified form of volleyball. It was 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%.
Over the past seven years Clontuskert has played at Galway county, Connacht province and All Ireland level. See some photos from our most recent County Final here.
Congratulations to Clontuskert’s Senior Spikeball Team who won the Galway County Final today in Ard Scoil Mhuire in Ballinasloe! Comhghairdeas!
