Some call it bubble football, others call it bubble soccer and for the Germans, they give it the accurate name of loopyball. No matter what term you use though, there’s no question that it’s fun and can be an excellent way to give yourself some much needed exercise!
What Is It?
Have you ever seen one of those inflatable balls where you can put people inside and just let them roll around for the thrill of it? Well, bubble football makes good use of this bubble plastic, encasing individuals inside up to their waist.

What results is hilarious chaos with players bumping into each other more often than actually managing to kick the ball towards a goal.
Bubble Football for Fitness

The best part is that you’ll be laughing so hard the whole time – exercising your stomach muscles even as your heart starts beating loudly and all the calories burn off.
The hilarity of the game also leads to reduced stress. With exercise thrown in, you’ll find that bubble soccer can help lift your mood – making it the perfect cap to the worst working week.

You’ll have to purchase the balls and the number of balls depends on the number of people on your team. The good news is that you should be able to find facilities that rent out these balls, along with the field
