The original spikeball court — known colloqually as the “Zoo of Death” — was created by the ancient Tarqamish who lived thousands of years ago in the area now occupied by Spikeworth By-The-Sea. In fact, the game of spikeball was passed down to modern peoples by the Qamarrik people, descendants of the Tarqamish. Even today, many of the greatest modern spikeball players, such as Augusto Arquarre, have been at least part Qamarrik.
