GoSports Slammo XL Game Set
The GoSport Slammo XL game set is similar to the Slammo pro set with the higher quality materials but it also has some new things to consider as well. The biggest difference in the Slammo XL set is the net is now 48”. This is 75% larger than the regular net surface. Since the net is so much bigger this makes it better for beginner players as well as now you can play against 3 v. 3 or even 4 v. 4.
You will still be getting all the great Slammo features you love, now we have just added a few bonuses for you. You will also be getting a hand pump so when you need to reflate your balls it will be super easy to do. The best part about this set is that you will also receive a lifetime replacement parts warranty that way you will always be able to fix your Slammo set if something happens to it.
This set is more expensive because of all the great features you will be getting. You need to really think about if these features matter to you because if they do then they are worth the money. I really like the XL Slammo set. I would say this set is my favorite because it is perfect for beginner player – which I am. And they provide you with all of the top-quality features.
There are some basic rules or guidelines if you will that you should follow to ensure a successful game.
- Make sure you are properly dressed for a game. Unless you are playing your Slammo game at the beach I highly suggest you wear some close toed shoes because the game is very active and will get intense.
- Unless you are using the Slammo XL game set then a regular game is two on two.
- When you are ready to serve the ball in the game you need to be about six feet away from your game net.
- You can serve a ball as a hard serve or a soft serve it is really up to you on how you want to serve.
- Each team only gets to touch the ball three times before they lose the round. You have to get the ball to the other team before the third turn is over.
- If the ball doesn’t directly hit the net and it somehow hits the rims or the ground then you do not receive a point for the round the other team will get to claim the point.
- The team that gets to twenty-one points first will be the winning team.
- After the first eleven points have been rewarding regardless of how many points each team has you have to switch sides.
- A player cannot touch the ball twice in a row.
How to Play Slammo
Setting Up Slammo
Before you even start to play your game, you will need to set up your equipment. The Slammo sets come with everything you need to play the game. Take everything out of your Slammo bag and begin setting it up. It is very straight forward to set up your game set. Connect all the rims and the negs then you just have to connect your net and your done. Its very easy and the instructions are very straight forward.
Now you need to find some friends to play with. You want to have two teams of two to play the game. If you are using the Slammo XL game set then you can actually play with more people because the net is bigger. Once you have your teams together all you have to do is grab a ball and start playing.
Physically Playing the Game
When you are playing the game, you need to decide which game will be serving the ball first. You can do this in many different ways either by rock paper scissors, flipping a coin, etc., you get the idea. Once that is established the team who is starting needs to serve the ball to the other team.
When the other team gets the ball, they have three tries to volley the ball back to the net to give back to the other team. If for some reason they do not get it back to the other team before the three tries or they drop the ball that round is over and the other team will receive a point. The game is totally over when someone gets to twenty-one points.
