The 2018 Roundnet tour series kicked off recently with the first ever two day event in Huntington Beach, California. It was the 1st of 19 official tournaments that will be sanctioned by the Spikeball Roudnent Association this season. With so many tournaments to choose from, it can be very hard to choose which events to go to. Sadly we can’t all be like Chris Hornacek and plan on going to each and every tournament, but hopefully this article can highlight some of the tour stops you may want to attend.

*Note: tournaments are listed in chronological order.

*Your Regions’ Co-Ed Tournament: One of the biggest changes for the 2018 season is that each region is having one of it’s tour stops be a two day event that will feature a Co-Ed division on Sunday after the typical open divisions on Saturday. 15 teams came out to the first ever sanctioned CoEd event at the Huntington Beach tour stop featuring many top men’s players participating. The 3 remaining tour stops that will also be two day events are Atlanta on April 7th and 8th, Chicago on April 21st and 22nd, and Lancaster on May 5th and 6th. These Sunday tournaments are a great way to have some fun playing with lady ballers and help women’s roundnet continue to gain more and more popularity.

*Santa Monica Grand Slam(6/23): You can’t ask for a much better way to end the west tour series than a trip to sunny Santa Monica. Outside of the tournament, there is also plenty of things to see and do around Los Angeles. Past grand slams here have seen its share of wild finishes and upsets, including one of Chico Spikes few losses when Strange Embrace bested them in the semis in 2016. This tournament has also typically been held in early May, so moving to June may allow more college aged players to come out and make it even bigger than it has been in past years.

*Summerspike(6/30): Summerspike has always been one of the biggest tournaments of the year ever since the inaugural edition in 2013. Last year saw over 200 teams come to Coney Island’s beach to battle for the infamous Summerspike trophy. Only the last 2 nationals have also broken the 200 team barrier. It also features many different divisions for all skill levels, including premier. Outside of all the roundnet action, Summerspike is known for having one of the biggest after parties of the year where a bar champ is also crowned.

*Boston Grand Slam(8/18): Ever since Boston began hosting the East region’s grand slam in 2016, it has been a mega hit. Not only do all the east coast ballers show up but a lot of teams from other regions have flocked to Beantown these last two years. The city also holds a little roundnet history as it was the only tournament that Cisek_Showalter didn’t win all of last season. Boston also has some of the best hospitality in the community as the guys in Spicy Roundnet Club do a great job of hosting everyone from out of town.

*Chicago Grand Slam(8/25): The roundnet tour series concludes in none other than the home of Spikeball Inc. The Chicago grand slam has consistently been one of the biggest tournaments every season and sees top teams from all over the country come to the Windy City. With so many good teams in the same place so late in the season, it almost serves as a preview to how regionals and nationals could play out. It’s also a great opportunity to tour Chicago and hang out with the members of Origin Roundnet Club.

With so many tour stops to choose from, hopefully this highlights some of the biggest tournaments to go to this season. Also worth noting that this only covers the main tour series and not postseason tournaments like regionals and nationals. Those dates and locations will be revealed later in the year, be sure to mark your calendars! Hope to see a lot of you at tournaments this season.

    How’s it going, roundnetworld?

    Do you not wish you could be Instagram cool?

    If you’re like me, you have trawled Instagram, wondering “how do so many darn people on Instagram get so famous”?

    I want you to imagine that it’s Friday and you’ve just woken up from a sound summer-time nap.

    Roll over, check the cellphone.

    Make your way to your page.

    Wow, you think, Over 561 likes on a single picture.

    Heading to the kitchen, you put the kettle on for some tea and check your Instagram while you wait.

    Bam! Another 63 likes.

    Buzz—a message pops into your inbox from a follower. They are asking you for advice on how you manage your food, and are congratulating you on your third month of hitting the gym.

    The kettle blows and you pour your tea. When you flip out your phone, there’s another message—this time from a young girl—thanking you for posting. She follows you religiously and you are an inspiration.

    Within minutes, your cell buzzes AGAIN.

    Oops, another hit. But no time to hit them back—you’ve got to hit the gym.

    Hey, roundnetworld!

    Don’t you wish you could be Instagram popular?

    If you are like me, you have rummaged through Instagram, wondering “how do so many darn people get so famous”?

    Picture this: You wake up early Friday, even before your alarm does.

    You spring up to check your cellphone.

    Hit the Instragram App.

    You‘re surprised at what you see: Over 652 likes on one of your pictures! There, you can see a flurry of likes on your pictures—over 652 on a single photo alone.

    Heading to the kitchen, you put the kettle on for some coffee and check your Instagram while you wait.

    Presto! Another 87 likes.

    Here comes another one. This time it is not a like but a message from one of your followers. They flatter you on your success and let you know they absolutely love your content.

    The kettle blows and you pour your tea. When you flip out your phone, there’s another message—this time from a young girl—thanking you for posting. She follows you religiously and you are an inspiration.

    Within minutes, your cell buzzes AGAIN.

    Oops, another ping. But you can’t reply—you’ve got to hit the gym.
    Anyways, you get the point. This is the life of an Instagram celebrity. I should know, because I’ve made many of them.

    My job is to take people from Instagram no one to Insta-celebrity. (It sounds stupid, but results don’t lie.)

    How’s it going, roundnetworld?

    Do you not wish you were Instagram famous?

    Have you ever wondered what it feels like to be an Instagram Influencer?

    Imagine: it is Friday morning and you told yourself you’d hit the gym today.

    Roll over, check your cellphone.

    Make your way to your page.

    Wow, you think, Over 800 likes on a single picture.

    Heading to the kitchen, you put the kettle on for some coffee and check your Instagram while you wait.

    Presto! Another 63 likes.

    Here comes another one. This time it’s not a like but a message from one of your followers. They commend you on your success and let you know they love scrolling through your content.

    A smile makes its way on your face as you receive another message. This person emailed you to let you know she loves your posts.

    Within minutes, your cell buzzes AGAIN.

    It’s another message coming in. You glance up at the clock—almost time for the gym. You will have to hit them up later.
    Let’s stop the simulation there. People have a hard time getting what they want in life. People can hardly get themselves to eat a good breakfast.

    My job is to take people from Instagram anonymous to Insta-celebrity. (It sounds stupid, but results do not lie.)

    Now, what if you raised your popularity by 100%, or 1000%?

    Truth is, it is not the most complicated thing in the world to get more. As an example, all the old pros use our website.

    Automagically see tons of likes on your images just minutes after posting.

    The “Top Post” section, all of a sudden, does not seem that far away.

    And because we love you, we made testing things out as simple as kitchen-cooled apple crumble:
    1. Check out https://plantspace.pro
    2. Plug in your Instagram username.
    3. 10 – 15 likes are going to be sent to your three most recent uploads. Just like that.

    Hitting the Top Post page will 10X your Instafame. But you have got to do more than just want it—you have got to do something about it. Are you willing?

    Chow until next time
