Vote: Is Bubble Ball the Next Big Thing?

By Abbey Tiderman 09.25.2016 blog

Do your parents worry too much? The truth is, from the moment toddlers start crawling, walking and exploring their environment, right through the teenage independent and driving years, many parents kinda wish they could just put their sons and daughters in a bubble to protect them. And now they can—on the soccer field at least!

Bubble ball soccer, also known simply as bubble ball, is the latest sports craze, and leagues are popping up across the country for one reason: fun! Get ready to giggle as you slip on your transparent, jumbo-sized plastic bubble and take to the field or court. A mix between soccer and bumper cars, this is one game that’ll have you and your friends rolling on the ground—literally. And Channel One had a blast checking out the madness– watch the behind-the-scenes video and see photos in the slideshow below.

Like regular soccer, you use your legs to try and get the ball down the field and into the back of the net. But with the gigantic bubble protecting your head and the rest of your body, this game is more about the experience of flipping and rolling than passing and goal scoring. It’s for all ages too, making an unforgettable corporate event or birthday party activity. You can rent or buy bubble balls — and can even start your own league!
