What is Bubble Soccer?

The Germans call it Loopyball, while other countries in Europe call it bubble football, but we call it bubble soccer. It’s the sporting game that’s sweeping the globe but actually started out as a joke between Henrick Elvestad and Johan Gold, hosts of the Norwegian comedy sports show Golden Goal. The duo posted a video of them playing bubble soccer on YouTube, and its popularity spread instantly.

The game itself is a cross between soccer and zorbing, a sport where an individual rolls down the side of a hill or sometimes a level surface in a giant plastic orb. The plastic orb surrounding the player in bubble soccer is similar in construction but differs where these allow the player’s legs to run around freely or essentially wear the orb.

The objective of bubble soccer is the same as traditional soccer, to score a goal against your opponent but with the added benefit of full contact being allowed. The game starts with players lined up along their goal lines, and the ball placed in the centre of the field. When players hear the whistle, they fearlessly rush in to the center to find and kick a soccer ball and avoid being knocked over by their opponents.

Foot Darts

Dart Ball Arrives in Sydney

Announcing the arrival of Dart Ball by Bubble Soccer.
Starting in November, Bubble Soccer Australia Guest in Sydney may add on a game of Dart Ball to their booking.

What is Dart Ball

Simply put, inflatable Dart Ball (or Foot Darts) is a new take on the game of darts and one that integrates the soccer concept as well. You have a giant inflatable darts board and you will need to shoot a Velcro ball at it. Your score will be based on where your ball will land. The rules will remain as in a regular game of Darts, however the addition of football elements makes it appealing, fun and exciting.

This new sport has impressed millions of people all over the world and it became a massive addiction all over Europe, Australia and the US. The great thing about it is that anyone can play it, there is no age limit and you can feel free to play with your friends if you so desire. It’s also a great sport if you want to improve your kicking accuracy, all while enjoying some time off and relaxation alongside your friends.

Playing Dart Ball is inexpensive but, most of all, it’s all about having fun. It’s a really neat and exciting game to play and one that will bring in front an extraordinary value all the time. With its help you get to work out but you also have the ability to be a part of a new amazing trend.
