Looking for some birthday party ideas for the sporty set? NYC is full of options that you can play indoors or out. From group games, individual sports, and a couple out of the ordinary choices (bubble ball, anyone?) we’ve got you covered. Click through to have a ball (and make a racket, break the ice, flip out, and strike the target!)

Bubble Ball Soccer

For slightly absurd sport, try a bubble ball party. Bubble Ball Soccer NYC can hold your party for kids ages seven and up indoors or out. Play a straight game or opt for the upgrade if a five game sampler, where kids can play five different games in the bubble ball suits (bubble sumo, red rover, last team standing, relay, and President). Another perhaps irresistible add-on?: a 3-minute edited video that includes the use of a go-pro in the bubble ball suits. Venues are in Manhattan and Brooklyn (with cost passed on to host); BBSNYC provides a game coordinator, referee, 10 bubble ball suits, music and speakers.
