Where Can I Play Bubble Soccer?

Bubble Soccer is a fun and amazing game that will have you laughing and wondering why you didn’t play sooner. Some people looking to book a bubble ball session often wonder where the best place to set up a game is. Since the balls are large and soccer itself takes a large amount of space to play, often times interested players think they are limited to needing a very large field.  

There are actually several great spaces you can set up and play a game of bubble soccer, including a traditional soccer field. Here are some ideas for places to play a game of bubble soccer.  

Where Can I Play Bubble Soccer?

A Basketball Court 

To some this doesn’t seem to be a large enough space and others worry that the floors may be too slick for safe play. In actuality, the smaller area makes it more fun to play a game of 5 on 5 bubble soccer because you get more contact with the ball and each other this way and bumping into each other is the best part of the game.  

As far as the slippery floor, with the proper shoes, it is as safe as playing a game of basketball which is what the floor is made for. Make sure to tell players in your party to bring proper sport court shoes, not open toe shoes, and don’t plan to play barefoot or in socks.  

Indoor courts also provide the added bonus of being able to play in chilly/rainy/snowy weather.  

A School Field 

School playgrounds and ball fields are excellent spaces to host a game of bubble ball. You can either set up on a grass playing field or under a covered cement basketball/sport court or any smooth cement play area.  Just make sure to get permission from the school first for using the area. You don’t want to show up planning to host a game and not have space to play because a local sports team is on the field or some other event is using the space.  

A Park 

There are numerous great places to set up a great game of bubble soccer at the local park. Many parks allow spaces to be reserved for parties and game events. A public park is intended for public use of all kinds, but you do want to call the parks department to ensure they allow the use of the inflatable balls on their field and they have space that is available on the date you want to play.  

A Gymnasium 

This is almost the same as a basketball court. Any facility with a gym is perfect for setting up bubble soccer. The indoor facility allows you to play any time of year and as stated above, the smaller space is actually more fun. Places that have gyms include: local workout gyms, schools, actual gymnastic gyms, YMCAs, churches, and sometimes preschools.  

Indoor Soccer Field 

Bubble soccer can be played just as easily inside as outside. Look up indoor soccer in your area and you may be surprised at how many places pop up. Many of these facilities rent to private parties when space is not being used by teams.  

A Large Yard  

Really all bubble soccer takes is an ample amount of space on the fairly level ground. If you have a large and fairly flat yard or a friend does you can set up a game of bubble soccer.

Bubble Soccer, The World’s Most Fun Workout

It is that time of year again when we make goals and resolve to live a better life in the coming year. One of the ways a majority of us do this is to commit to making more time for physical fitness and healthy habits. Most people lace up their running shoes and hit the pavement or sign up for a new class, maybe try a new video series at home. May we suggest bubble soccer? It is a great way to get in a workout and have fun at the same time. You may even find yourself enjoying it so much you will want to come back and work out some more.Bubble Soccer, The World's Most Fun Workout

On average you can burn around 12 to 18 calories a minute running. Add sprinting and carrying a large blow-up bubble soccer suit and you can easily increase your calorie burn and sweat. Play a one hour game and you have burned about a week’s worth of calories all while having fun and no doubt laughing your head off at the same time.

Bubble soccer isn’t just exercising it is a game. Get lost in the game and having fun knocking down your friends and laughing as you watch them try to get back up or die of laughter trying to get back up yourself. Before you know it you will be a sweaty yet happy messy thinking that that was the fastest hour you have ever lived. You will have so much fun you will be sad the game is over.

Once you have burned a whole week’s calories you will go about the rest of your day burning calories at a faster rate than normal an added bonus to your super fun workout. Bubble soccer is a high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workout. A HIIT workout can have you burning extra calories for up to 38 hours after you are finished. The extra challenge in the exercise means your body needs to work harder on the restorative process, making bubble soccer one of the best workouts for faster results.

Questions, Answers and a Whole lot of Fun


If you are considering a bubble soccer adventure it is highly likely that you have many questions you would like to have answered. Even though we’ve seen the videos of the high impact sport, that doesn’t always give you enough information to feel comfortable and confident to book your adventure. A few commonly asked questions and the answers you’ve been waiting for are below!

What exactly is Bubble Soccer?Questions, Answers and a Whole lot of Fun

While it is still soccer, each player is given a giant bubble suit to wear during the game. This allows you to bump, knock and roll into your opponents all while trying to get the ball and make a goal for your team. We’ve all enjoyed a fun round of bumper cars at the Fair; essentially you are playing bumper cars while still playing soccer!

Is Bubble Soccer safe?

When you have fragile items being packed or shipped, more often than not they are wrapped in bubble wrap. While playing you are essentially wrapped up in the life-size equivalent of bubble wrap! Don’t worry you will be perfectly safe inside your bubble suit and wearing a giant bubble of air, much like an air bag, to deflect any impact that is sent your way.

Where do we play?

There are dozens of different options for your Bubble Baller experience. Bubble Baller will provide you will all the equipment you will need and it is your job to find the location that you would like to use for your game. Indoor or outdoor, just ensure that you have a large space with a flat surface. Parks, fields, a concrete court, wood floors, etc. the possibilities are endless. If you are unable or do not want to find a place to play, simply let Bubble Baller know and they will find a location for you!

What do I need to wear?

One thing that you need to keep in mind when playing is to limit and even eliminate anything with a sharp end such as bobby pins, hair clips and cleats. By wearing these you could risk the possibility of popping your bubble. Bubble Soccer is a high intensity sport so be sure that you are not only comfortable in your clothing but that it is movable. We recommend wearing some sort of sports clothing similar to what you would wear to the gym. Kneepads are another great thing to bring along as it could make your over all experience more enjoyable. T-shirts with full sleeves work better than a tank top as you will have straps holding your bubble in place. This will help ensure that you don’t have any friction on your skin.

Do I have to be in good shape to play?

Bubble Soccer is designed for everyone to enjoy and truly is what you decide to make it. You can make the game as high intensity or as low intensity as you would like. If you have any medical conditions or are pregnant make sure to consult your doctor before signing up to play.
