Have you been itching to try something new and exciting? Maybe, with the new year coming up, you’re ready to start getting more active and get out more.

Whatever the reason, you want to try a new sport. Have you thought about Zorb football? We have locations throughout London as well as all over the UK?

It’s new, exciting, and fun for everyone. Here’s what you need to know about it, and how you can get started.

What is Zorb football?

Essentially, Zorb football is played in a similar manner to normal, five a side football. What’s different though is that you play on an inflatable pitch.

You also play with a specially designed Zorb ball, which fits over your head and body, leaving your legs free.

You aren’t able to tackle like you would in regular football, so instead you tackle by bouncing into the player you’re targeting.

It’s a calculated risk, though, as you may well just bounce off them, rather than knocking them off their feet.

What you will need to bring

To play a game of Zorb football – London, all you need are some friends and eagerness to have fun. The organisers of the game will arrange the rest for you, meaning you just have to show up.

It’s worth wearing some lightweight clothes that you can move about in freely. Also, be sure to wear socks, as you won’t be able to wear shoes on the inflatable pitch.

Skill levels needed to play

You actually don’t need any prior experience of football in order to play this version. It’s easy to think that you’ll need to be able to play with some amount of skill, but Zorb football isn’t about being an expert, it’s about having some fun and spending time with your friends.

Don’t worry about not being great at football, just come and be ready to play, and the organisers will do the rest.

Equipment walkthrough

The organisers will have the equipment ready when you arrive, and will have checked it over to make sure it’s all ready to go.

They’ll also give you a quick safety talk before you go out onto the pitch. That way, you’ll know exactly how to use the equipment before you play.

The main equipment you’ll use is the inflatable pitch and the Zorb balls. The pitch is very similar to the way a bouncy castle feels when you’re on it.

The balls protect you if you fall down, which let’s be honest, you will do.

Where to play

It’s actually very easy to find a game near you. When you call to arrange a game, it can be held anywhere that can accommodate the pitch.

That can even include your own back garden. They’re often held in sporting centres as well, but it can be brought as near to you as possible.
