Have you ever looked at a bounce house and thought, "that would make a fantastic outfit?" If so, here's the game for you: bubble soccer. This new sport that's literally rolling across the nation straps its players inside a human-size bubble suit, enclosing everything but their feet and sense of adventure. Bubble Soccer Orange County brings this sport to the West Coast, setting up games where teams bump, push, and tackle their way to the goal—all while bubble suits provide each with a soft landing.
- Ways to play: rent the suits for a private game, sign up for one of the weekend games at local parks, or join a league.
- The rules are a lot like regular soccer, with some exceptions. For example, there isn't a dedicated goalkeeper, and gameplay stops if the ball winds up inside a person's bubble.
- It's almost as fun to watch. Check out these videos for a sample of what to expect.
