Bubble Soccer

Bubble soccer is the latest craze to hit Ireland's activities industry and you can play it at Kilkenny Activity Centre. Just like soccer it is a team game played on a football pitch with the object of the game being to score more goals than the opposition. That however is where the similarities end. In this game the participants are protected by a big, inflatable bubble which covers them from head to waist with only their legs free to move meaning any efforts to actually play soccer bring hilarious results. Bubble soccer is played as a five-a-side team game with any number of substitutes which interchange regularly meaning no one is left out. It can be enjoyed by all ages and is an ideal activity for parties, clubs, hens and stags, corporate or just any group that are out for a bit of fun. Like everything we do we are not artificial - We play on GRASS…
