Have you ever been playing soccer and wished you could be the ball instead of kicking it? Probably not, because that would hurt quite a bit! But if you ever have wanted to bounce around like a ball while playing soccer, bubble soccer is for you!
YES, bubble soccer is a thing!
“Two players stand on opposite ends of a field. Between them, a soccer ball awaits its fate. The opponents run for it, each at full speed, but hit each other instead—and bounce safely to the ground, laughing. This is Ultimate Bubble Ball soccer, the only version of the world's favorite game that involves the players being wrapped up in a sphere of bouncy plastic. Every collision,every stumble, every jump and roll suddenly segues into high flying antics as dozens of bubble clad athletes rebound off each other on the grass.”
