We recommend holding your event at outdoor park settings on soft green grass where players will feel more comfort. This way you don’t just need to head off after your event, you can stay back, have a bbq or organise a catering service and enjoy the rest of a social afternoon. On the day we setup the equipment, facilitate/referee and supervise the event leaving you nothing more to do than just to enjoy.
Following is more info to help you decide:
Our Bubble Suits
Our bubble suits are a lightweight soft material that is also sturdy. It’s important they are light, as this will put less stress on the ankles and knees and make it easier to manoeuvre. Lighter bubbles also mean less fatigue, so you can play longer.
How long should you book for?
The ideal event depends on the numbers you want to play with. Bubble Soccer is definitely a group activity and should not be played with less than 8 or 10. Generally an hour or just over is sufficient for a small group of 8-10 with each player having their own bubble suit. An hour may not seem long but the activity is so tiring and physically intense that going for more than hour would be over working your self and would drain you of all your energy. If you have more than 10-15 you can 90 minutes and 2 hours. With more players we will also need to sanitise bubble suits between interchange to reduce risk of spreading germs and infections.
If you feel you want to stretch out your event you can have a game of soccer without bubbles on inside our inflatable arena or we recommend booking our inflatable footdarts or human foosball games, which are also soccer themed. So if you are planning activities for after the bubble soccer make sure its not a physically and challenging one. Enquire about our footdarts and Human Foosball games if you want to stretch out your Soccer themed Party.
Should I hire the inflatable arena (Barrier):
The inflatable arena is usually optional however due to the enormous added value it brings to the game it is highly recommended. Anyone who has experienced bubble soccer with the inflatable arena will tell you there is no comparison; just look at the visuals and you can easily see the difference. The following are just a few:
- Ball is kept in the field; the game flows, as there is less interruption.
- Keeps players engaged and in bumping distance to each other. When the game spreads to far out players lose interest very quickly and the event degenerates within a short time frame as fatigue sets in much quicker.
- Safety: The Barrier ensures no walking traffic; pets or other children can come into the playing area, nor can a player with a bubble leave the playing area. It gives you your own private space within the park. Just imagine a dog chasing a ball in the middle of a game, or a small child who ends up in the playing area, this can be dangerous. Remember players in a bubble may not be aware of their immediate surroundings with the same awareness when not in a bubble.
As we require additional time and extra staff to setup the heavy item and a large generator to frequently run there is an additional fee for the inflatable arena however try to keep this as low as possible. However keep in mind you wont be frequently playing bubble soccer so paying that little extra will go a long way and will be appreciated by your child and all involved.
Ideal Number of Participants
While we can cater for as many as you like we recommend numbers such 8,10, 12, 15, 16 and 20. This way we could run the event with teams of 4 or 5 players in each team. For example if you had 15 , you would then play 3 teams of 5 in rotation. For number of participants exceeding 15 we would then recommend you extend the duration of the party or add more activities or add more bubble suits depending.
The Ideal Location
A park with lush green grass is best and safest. Soft landing is important when doing flips as players may at times fall on their knees. This is also important for our bubble suits as we use lightweight material that can get punctured in rough terrain and where there are obstacles such as trees etc in the way. We recommend that for a better party experience you also choose parks amenities and available car parks for the comfort of your guests. But remember the busier your location the more congested the traffic.
We generally have locations we frequent in each council area, which we can recommend, however you can also run your event at a park of your choice as long as you can obtain a permit. With parks that we call our location we will obtain park hire on your behalf, some councils will require you make the application yourself however we will provide you with our insurance details and support and assist you with the park hire.
Bad weather, postponing and cancellations
As is the case with most outdoor activities Bubble soccer is also weather dependant. This includes rainy days, extreme heat and strong gale force winds. During which we will need to postpone the event. For any events cancelled or postponed during bad weather you will not lose any funds and any deposit or payments will deferred ahead or refunded if you have to cancel due to postponements.
Is a park hire permit really needed?
Absolutely! Certain councils are already considering banning bubble soccer and similar physical events in their council areas due to suppliers not bothering to hire parks or misleading their patrons into believing they don’t need one. A permit is required for the following reasons:
- To avoid double booking. Imagine turning up for your event to find that a carnival or a large-scale event is happening and you have no space to run your event or are told to leave? Leave your self with peace of mind.
- Councils may dismiss and not take responsibility for anything that may go wrong, even if it is a problem associated with the park that is under their jurisdiction.
- Its illegal. Councils require permits for any events, which take up shared common areas. Bubble Soccer mainly uses parks that are shared space, simply because football parks are usually booked for weekend organised sports. Bubble soccer generally runs at smaller parks but those that the public frequents, as such a permit is required.
Unfortunately there are costs associated with park hire permits. Some councils charge more than others, therefore certain parks have different permit rates. As such our prices are usually not included with park hire fees unless specified.
With Covid-19 and other contagions about it is vital to have a rigid sanitation process and procedure. We thoroughly wipe our bubble suits with alcohol wipes between interchange of players, where available we may also use a special Fogger with a special solution that sprays the bubble suit to kill the Covid virus within 2 minutes. While we do our best to ensure the equipment are well sanitised we also strongly advise players are well checked for a temperature, cough, cold or other symptoms. Please also refer to our Covid-19 procedure checklist, which we will share with you before your booking.
