What is a ball can be used for? The answer may be various, you can kick it, beat it, shoot it, hit it, and roll it like a bowling ball. But what if it is a giant plastic ball? The first answer which comes from my mind is that-bubble soccer!
What is bubble soccer?
Bubble soccer is a wonderful new trendy movement invented by Norwegians. The upper body of the player is wrapped in a transparent plastic zorb ball
, and only the legs are exposed for running and kicking.
The human hamster ball played a good protective role, but the balance of the players was more difficult to master. When players fall, they will bounce on the ground, and the clumsy movements of the players make the game fun. Goals are no longer important in bubble soccer, knocking over opponents is the fun.
You can play bubble soccer at your local park, gym or work venue as long as it is wide enough. To protect yourself from knocks to your knees I recommend playing on grass. Soft grass can ease the pain you get from bumping.
What to wear
I recommend closed trainers to protect your toes and remove all loose items – this includes glasses if possible. If it rains, a light weatherproof jacket is needed or alternatively a change of clothes and a towel is also available. When the sun is shining you will get pretty hot so please do not forget the suncream.
