Ok, so you’re about to play Bubble Football, but you’re never played it before and don’t know what to expect.
Not to worry, we are here to save the day! Here are some tips, tricks, do’s and don’ts from the Bubble Football experts – Spartacus Bubble Soccer (of course!).
How do you put the suit on?
Good question! We have all seen the giant hamster zorbs on holiday haven’t we (remember holidays, great weren’t they!). Where you are fully encased in a giant inflatable bubble and you run around like a hamster either on land or water.
Well, not that. But similar! Bubble Zorbs encase only the top half of your body. So you’re covered from head to waist in the zorb but your legs are free to run around with it. Like carrying a giant inflatable backpack around on your back!
Does size matter?
Depends who you ask and in what context I suppose, but in Bubble Football it doesn’t! Of course, someone who is bigger will be harder to knock down but if you’re lighter you will be much harder to catch.
Use your attributes to your advantage – this is a game of witts!
Do you need to like Football?
With Spartacus, the answer is NO. In Fact a little interesting fact for you: If we took away the ball after 2 minutes no one would even realise. You are wearing a giant inflatable bubble on your back that lets you safely smash your mates 10ft in the air or down the pitch like a giant bowling ball – why on earth would you be bothered with the football?
What should I wear?
Whatever you like! Some of the costumes we’ve had in the past are borat mankini (hairy asses flying through the air in bubble suits), giant sharks, super mario and marge simpson.
All are great but if your feelings are practical we recommend light sportswear and trainers!
What games will we play?
With Spartacus, you will get plenty of original games that you won’t find anywhere else. The Zorb Olympics ™
Why do we need more games? Well hear us out – we were the first-ever company in Liverpool and we’ve run hundreds of bubble events throughout our years (highest rated on Trip Advisor too).
Going right into bubble football you will be on your back in 5 minutes and blowing out your ass! We mix it up. A variety of really fast-moving games and challenges in the zorb suits that don’t gas you out right away and keep the group’s attention and energy.
All leading up to a giant bubble football battle at the end that resembles a WWE Royal Rumble.
Bonus Question – How do I get up when I go down?
For all you Rocky Balboa’s reading this thinking you won’t get knocked down, I assure you, you will!
But it ain’t how hard you hit; it’s about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward (Little Rocky quote there for you)
The BEST way to get back up is to roll to your front. Put your knees on the floor. One leg up first and then the other.
If you are stuck on your back like a stag beetle then simply roll to your front again and repeat the above process.
If you are stuck upside down – nothing I can do for you mate, sorry (shout for help maybe?).
