    April 3, 2018 by barbara

    Bubble football is a sport similar to regular football as it involves playing and scoring a soccer ball. The only difference is that the players are encased in inflatable spheres excluding the legs only. Also; there are no goalkeepers involved since the arms are also enclosed along with the head, chest, stomach, waist, and thighs inside the sphere. The aim of playing this sport is to finish the game with more goals than the opponent. However, the battle between the opposing players is what makes bubble football special. This is because it involves knocking one another to the ground, but with no one getting harmed.

    Bubble soccer is that sport which guarantees players to smile and laugh throughout. This includes the spectators too as they watch the falling players roll across the field. This sport is also relatively affordable since it can be used on various types of indoor and outdoor surfaces such as grass, artificial turf, gym floors, and carpets. This implies that it can take place throughout the year without worrying about the weather. These places can be basketball courts, gyms, tennis courts, football playgrounds, open grassy fields, and backyards, among others. Also, this sport can be played by anyone above 10 years old.

    Besides the fun it provides, bubble balls involves working out the body to the maximum. This is because players get to run, jump, dive, stretch, and shoot. This usually leads to serious sweating which is essential in relieving the body of toxics. The exercises are also helpful in maintaining the players physically and mentally fit. Meanwhile; this sport is NOT for those which health & medical conditions like severe claustrophobia, headaches, heart attacks, asthma, and nausea. And lastly, all kids below 18 years old should have signed waiver agreements from their parents or guardians or caretakers allowing them to play. Find more details from blue inflatable.
