Bubble Soccer

Kick your party into high gear with San Diego Bubble Soccer. Their dependable team arrives early to set up at your venue (a flat grassy surface is best). They’ll train your guests how to use the gear safely and act as referees for crazy fun, sweat-worthy games. Each player stands in the middle of an inflatable bubble, belts it onto shoulders (back pack style) and holds onto the handles. Then the games begin with goals, cones, balls, and even music supplied by the company (or plug in your own playlist!)  Players must be ages 7 and up. Parties start at $300.
