SlamBall is officially coming back.

The sport, which combines basketball with trampolines, has become a social media sensation nearly 20 years after going off the air on Spike TV.

Apparently, all the social media interest in SlamBall has convinced big-money investors to bring it back.

According to a report from Front Office Sports, SlamBall is officially going to return this summer for a six-week regular season in Vegas.
