+ Is Bubble Ball Soccer safe?
Absolutely! Our bubble balls are adult sized balls with .8mm thickness, which allows for it to be durable during the wear and tear of play.They have a heat-sealed construction with overlapping seams which can withstand the stresses of playing and multiple stresses of inflation and deflation over time. Additionally, the ball will help ease the fall when you knock into other players and every game will have referees to help keep the order and safety of the players.

" We started off my best friend's bachelorette party playing bubble soccer and it was the perfect way to kick off the festivities. Organizing and booking the game was super easy - Camille and Patrick were responsive, clear and patient with all of our questions and we loved that we didn't have to search for our own venue. We seriously just showed up and everything was taken care of."
- Melissa S. (NYC)
" Today I played my first bubble soccer game ever and I'm hooked! I felt completely safe and secure in my bubble ball despite all the knocking, bouncing and bumping I withstood. I was the opposing team's main target given my love and experience of soccer. These little plastic balls are impressively durable."
" We had an awesome time at bubble ball soccer nyc. There were about 17 of us, which was great since you get exhausted after about 5 minutes running around in these things. At least we did, but we're all out of shape and middle aged so while half of us rested, the other half got to knock each other around. It was a low scoring game but immense fun was had by all! Thanks for bringing this amazing sport to new york city "
- Samuel H. (NYC)
