Slamball is a form of basketball where the players use trampolines to elevate themselves and shoot the ball through the hoop. There are four trampolines surrounding each net. Players must shoot the ball on the opponent's net to score.

A successful shoot will gain 2 points while a dunk will gain 3 points. During the game, there will be four players each team, two referees, coach, and assistants/staffs, and table officials.

Each player can be a handler, gunner, or stopper. The handler is the primary ball handler, the gunner is the primary scorer of the team and the stopper is the primary defensive player. The whole game will have four 5-minute quarters. When each player reached 3 personal fouls, they will be "fouled out" or will be removed from the game. Substitution is unlimited.
