Your All-American Bubble Soccer Partner
There’s a new game in town: bubble soccer (“aka bubbleball”). Hilarious to play or watch, it’s good exercise, and it’s one of the safest sports there is. Played much like classic soccer, on the same field, it has one major difference that transforms it completely.
Before Bubble Soccer
These days, soccer in America is huge. Partly because the kids who first played soccer in the 70s and 80s are now adults with kids of their own and money to buy tickets and merchandise, and also because many immigrants from Europe and Latin America have brought their fanaticism along with them, soccer is an immensely popular youth sport, played in schools and universities, and also big business as a professional sport, with games being televised on major networks in multiple languages. Still, in a culture raised on the high scores of basketball and the bruising action of the NFL, the game is still thought to be a little slow, and sometimes is dismissed as boring to watch, although fun to play. And while a relatively safe sport, it is still prone to knee, ankle, and face injuries.
And Then Bubble Soccer Arrived
And so did several bubble soccer suppliers after us. Now, we have a game that is safe, entertaining to watch, and hilariously fun to play: bubble soccer (more commonly called bubbleball). What on God’s green Earth is bubble soccer, you ask? The most action-packed, entertaining, delightful to watch, safest version of soccer the world has ever seen! Take one part soccer, one part pillow fight, one part vaudeville slapstick comedy, mix well, and what you get looks a little bit like this:
So, clearly just a little bit different than the soccer we have come to know and appreciate. If by “a little bit different” you mean zany, unpredictable, whacky, hilarious, farcical, and, in fact, an entire thesaurus full of words that mean fun and/or adventure.
As with soccer, bubble soccer is played on a grass field or indoor gym of usual dimensions, with a referee, and two goals. Sometimes time is kept according to regulations, or games are often shortened by design, by exhaustion, or by the inability of people convulsed with laughter to run after a ball anymore.
Bubble Soccer is Just Too Fun
Clearly, this is a fun game to play. People who play soccer all the time find it a fun variation on a game they love, pushing them to develop new strategies for passing and scoring, and those who have never played soccer before relish a game that is a combination of bumper cars, pillow fighting, and sumo wrestling on a field with teams and a goal and a ball.
The game is especially popular as a company team-builder, and as an icebreaker at corporate retreats It gets everyone laughing, and vents tensions in a positive, enjoyable way.
