Bubble Football

What is Bubble Football?

Bubble Football is when you get inside large inflatable balls that you slide into so they fit above your knees and over your head and you play the traditional game of football. You can then crash and bump into other players as you try and score that all important goal for your team.

Is it fun?

Bubble Football is great fun for children and for adults alike and it is hugely entertaining for everyone, a great way to get active and is challenging physical fun. Plus it is a great game for parents to play with their children - so why not give it a go?

Is it safe?

The Zorbs are made out of A1CTPU or TPU hard wearing plastic and each has a 4 point harness. They are surprisingly resilient and have 6 intersections to add to their strength. As players only bump into other Bubble Football players, then everyone has double protection. In the unlikely advent of a puncture, the Zorbs can easily be fixed by strong holding tape until they are correctly repaired later. Our Staff are fully trained and highly experienced and they must be listened to at all times.

What to Expect at a Party

Start of the Party

The rules of Bubble Football are explained clearly to everyone by the referee before the game starts. These include being told to stay inside the designated area and not to charge into people when they have already been knocked over. Everyone must also remove any sharp objects that are in their pockets.

The Games

We start off by getting everyone used to the Zorbs, which means running around bumping and crashing into people. This is great fun in itself. We rotate players on and off, it is quite physical and you'll be happy with a breather. Depending on the number of players and the length of time for the party, we put everyone into teams and start playing the games.

What should I wear?

Loose clothing and long trousers are the best. Comfortable flat shoes or trainers. Avoid having any valuables on you such as jewelry. You'll also need to remove any sharp objects from your pockets. Bubble Football can be played outdoors on grass, indoors in a sports hall or on Astro Turf pitches.

Do I need to bring anything?

Bubble Football is a very energetic activity, so you may want to bring drinks in plastic bottles to keep you hydrated. Depending on the weather, for outdoor events you may want to bring suncream.
