Why are there only 10 Bubble Suits?
All Football Zorbing events are played 5-a-side for Health and Safety and Insurance reasons so 10 Bubble Suits are provided. For larger groups, our hosts rotate players around and a lot of our groups have commented saying how tiring the activity is so they are glad of a break when it comes to swapping out with someone!
What are bubble suits?
Bubble Suits are inflatable plastic bubbles, with hand grips and holes top and bottom to get in and out! Your body, down to your legs is inside the suit, and you hold onto hand grips throughout. There is a hole above your head to let in air and for you to see out of if you bend forwards. The bubble suits have straps which can be adjusted according to your size.
What should I wear?
It is recommended to wear jogging bottoms or tracksuit bottoms as you may slide along the floor. Suitable trainers and a short sleeve top are also required. Please DO NOT wear football boots with studs / blades!
Is the venue provided by yourself?
Yes. We mostly operate with outside venues as it’s just more fun and bouncier on the pitches. We will be unable to confirm which venue until you have booked, as availability changes all the time, and we would not want to promise you a venue until it is guaranteed, which will be after payment is taken.
What if the weather isn’t good?
Football Zorbing is an all weather activity played on all weather 3G pitches. The Bubble Suits cover the body from the head down to the legs. Due to the active nature of Football Zorbing players do tend to get hot inside the suits so it is cooler to play outside even during the winter months and in varying weather conditions such as rain.
Outside events may be cancelled in extreme conditions such as gale force winds, torrential rain or heavy snow.
Can groups drink alcohol whilst playing?
No, any groups found drinking alcohol whilst playing or intoxicated will be asked to sit out and will not be entitled to a refund.
Can you come to my own venue?
Yes, we can travel to your venue. We will need approximately 25m x 25m, access to power and the surface must be suitable for a sporting activity with no obstacles or uneven ground that could cause injury. The pitch hired must be either astro, 3G/4G, grass, or all weather multi purpose. We cannot play on concrete or tennis courts.
If you provide your own venue and we are unable to run your activity due to health and safety (above requirements not met), there will be no refund.
