Bubble Sportz and Games
Giant Beach Ball Volleyball
Just like the game ‘British Bulldog’ and it’s variations of ‘Octopus’, ‘Seaweed’ and ‘Bullrush’. Usually, one or two participants are selected as ‘Bulldogs’ and all remaining players line up on the goal line of the pitch. These players then run to the other end of the pitch, trying to avoid being knocked off their feet by the Bulldogs. All players who get knocked over become Bulldogs themselves on the next run. The winner is the last player standing.
BUBBLE SOCCER (FOOTBALL)
By far the most popular inflatable ball sport. Bubble Soccer (Football) took off in Europe and has now spread around the world. Bubble Soccer has existed in the mainstream of Melbourne, Australia since late 2013.
Soccer has a bit of a reputation for being soft, but not Bubble Soccer, where you are encouraged to get bowled over and bounce back up.
The sport plays exactly the same as small pitch soccer, but all participants are wearing a giant inflatable bubble like a backpack which protects them from every angle.
Teams race against each other over a course. With one person tucking themselves in their ball and the other person outside the bubble rolling them.
Two opponents battle it out inside a Sumo ring. You eliminate your opponent by knocking them out of the right or putting them on the ground.
Dodgeball with a Bubble twist. This is a great game to get absolutely everyone involved from kids to parents. Just like regular Dodgeball, two teams oppose each other and are eliminated by having their throw caught or being struck on the full below the head.
To add some spice we add inflatable obstacles to the field, allow special rules that get your entire team ‘back-in’ and in some cases even allow ‘defenders’ in Bubbles to run around.
Plus many, many more!
