What is Bubble Football?
Bubble football is a relatively new craze. Players wear a 1.55m bubble suit that is fully inflated to cover your upper body. Your legs are still able to move freely whilst wearing the zorb. Then you will split into two teams of 5 ready to play a game of 5 a side football. The aim of bumper football is to try and score goals, however there will be a twist of carnage. Smash into the other players in your bubble football suits and bounce them out of the way. Great for stag weekends and football fans.
