What are the rules of bubble football?
The usual football rules are applied here as well; it has a kick-off and the goal is the same: score as many points as you can by getting the ball in to the enemy’s hoop. There is no keeper here, whoever stands the closest to the hoop has to defend it. Here comes the twist: every player is wearing in a gigantic plastic bubble (weighting circa 10 kilos). These bubbles cover you until your knees and they make running around in them, dodging and passing the ball harder and way different to what you are used to. It’s also much funnier, because from a distance it seems as if sumo wrestlers in huge plastic bubbles are running around on the field. Yes, you are reading it correctly: you can not only run by your enemy you can also dodge them, hit them or make them roll on their heads’.
