Bubble Football – a new craze sweeps ESOE

Everyone is familiar with a good old kick-about, however for some this has become a little too predictable and tame…

So to spice things up a bit and add some extra excitement, someone decided to add some giant inflatable bubbles into the equation – resulting in an extremely entertaining and humours new sport called Bubble Football.

The concept is similar to the original, with players aiming to score against each other – however in this version each player is immersed Bubble footballin a giant inflatable bubble and the rule book is scrapped. What this means, is that players are free to bump, bash and roll their way to victory.

We have now played Bubble Football twice with our students and it has been tremendous fun each time! As you are encased in the bubble from head to thigh you are completely safe and can play as hard as you like without risking an injury.

As the organisers put it on Twitter: “Bubble Football went international!!! So many great goals, big hits and banter!”

As everyone enjoyed this new take on football, we look forward to trying out some other new sports – one option could be Footgolf!!


Kick-about - To have a casual game of football

Tremendous - When something is very great in amount, scale or intensity
