Founded in 1992 by the co-founder of Hoopfest, Jerry Schmidt, Spike & Dig has grown into one of the world's largest outdoor co-ed 6-on-6 volleyball tournaments with over 360 teams and 2,500 players. Held every August at Dwight Merkel Complex in North Spokane, it is a great community event that features an action packed weekend of volleyball, sunshine, and fun.
