FAQ's

Can I rent bubbles now?

We are currently accepting reservations. If you would like to rent, please email us or use the form on the Contact page.

 

How much does it cost?

See our current prices under the Rental page. Prices are subject to change. Deals will be advertised on our Facebook.

 

I understand the minimum rental is 10 bubbles. What if I don’t have 9 friends who have interest/money to play?

We are busy developing a Bubble Soccer League, as well as organizing “pick-up” games that individuals can join. Be sure to follow our Facebook and to stay updated on opportunities for individuals as soon as they are available. There is a lot of excitement about this sport, and there will limited space as we roll it out, so follow us to be sure you get the news first.

 

Do you have a facility where I can come play?

Currently, we provide the equipment and you supply the field. However, we can deliver the equipment almost anywhere, and there are many public fields and parks in the area. Also, some schools offer their fields for recreational use by the community. Here are some more ideas. Note: Some parks and fields require a permit, reservation, and/or a use fee for organized or team activities, and that is your responsibility.

 

Do I need a full-size soccer field?

Definitely not. In fact, for most groups, a much smaller field is better, to reduce the running and increase the bumping! A basketball-court size field or court, either indoors or outdoors, works great for a 5-on-5 match.

 

Do I need any additional equipment?

No. The game requires bubbles, ball, line markers, and goals. We can provide all of these. Some people bring their own knee pads for extra comfort/protection and to make it easier to stand up without using their arms. As with any outdoor athletics, it is a good idea to bring sunscreen, water, and a towel.


Do you require a liability waiver (and what about minors)?

Yes, we do. As with any athletic sport, there is a risk of physical injury when playing bubble soccer. We will give you some tips on what not to do, but you are responsible for playing safely and sanely. For minors, a parent or guardian must sign a liability waiver.


Do I have to blow up the bubbles myself?

Nope. We have machines for that, and we will inflate them prior to your start time.

 

Do you include a referee to explain everything?

Yes, each rental includes a referee who will instruct you on how to use the equipment and how to play safely, as well as help organize your game.

 

Do I have to follow formal soccer rules?

No! Our standard format is based on soccer, with some modifications to increase fun and safety. Plus, there are lots of other bubble-suit games that work with different numbers of people in different sized spaces. We’re happy to provide more information on request. Ultimately, how you play is up to you. 

 

Do I have to know how to play soccer?

No. The referee will explain the rules, and it's easy to learn.


Is there a minimum (or maximum) height?

No. For the standard-size bubbles, we suggest that you be 4’11” or taller for the best experience. However, we can also provide smaller bubbles for children. Very tall people (6'2"+) should consider bringing knee pads for extra protection during falls.

 

Is there a minimum age?

No. For standard-sized bubbles, we suggest age 10 and up, simply based on your size relative to the bubbles. However, we can provide children-sized bubbles as well, so if you would like to rent for a group of little people, please let us know.

 

Is it ok if I have long hair?

Yes, but you will need to put your hair up. If you roll upside down, which happens frequently during games, your hair could get caught between the bubble and the ground. Ouch.

 

How big are the bubbles?

About 5 feet across and about 20 pounds.

 

How big are the soccer balls?

We have both standard size soccer balls and 30-inch “beach-ball” soccer balls. Both are fun.

 

How do I wear the bubble?

The bubble is a globe or sphere with a tube through the middle where you stand. There is an opening above your head. Two safety belts hold the bubble on your shoulders, and there are two handles to hold onto with your hands.

 

Is it fun?

Yes. It’s even more fun than it looks.

 

I have a question that isn't answered here. Who can I ask?
