When it comes to new and exciting sports, London is the place to be. The people of the capital are always finding new and exciting ways to get fit.

Have you heard about bubble football, London?

This new take on the beloved sport is already one of the best ways to get together and have a good time with your friends.

Here are all your questions, answered.

Is bubble football like regular football?

The basic rules are similar. You’ll play in teams of five, and your objective is to get the ball into the other team’s goal. However, that’s where the similarity ends. Bubble football is so called because you wear a Zorb over your head and shoulders, leaving your legs free. You have to play with this on, turning the game into a fun filled romp.

Because of this, regular tackling isn’t a part of bubble football. Instead, to tackle someone you must bounce into them with your Zorb ball. The hope is you’ll knock them over, but of course the risk is that you’ll bounce away too!

What equipment is needed to play?

You don’t need to bring a lot in order to play. That’s because games of bubble football – London are run by professionals who bring the Zorbs, the ball, and even an inflatable pitch for you to play on.

You need to make sure you’re wearing comfortable clothes, such as a t-shirt and comfortable trousers, and a good pair of socks are essential. Other than that, you’re good to go.

Do you need to be experienced to have a go?

Not at all. Many would be players are put off, as they don’t want to play against more experienced people, and don’t want to let their own team down.

However, this isn’t like your old PE lessons. The joy of the Zorbs is that they level out the playing field.

Your mate might be brilliant on the pitch, but in a Zorb he’s as susceptible to a good tackle as anyone else. As this is the case, you can get involved and just enjoy yourself.
