Bubble Soccer, also referred to as Bubble football, is a fun sport which is played like normal soccer is played. The players are enclosed in huge inflated balls that cover the players’ upper body and head. This sport is gaining immense popularity due to its method of playing which is quite enjoyable for the players as well as the spectators. Also, there is little chance of getting hurt while playing as the players are protected by the bubble.
The suits have to be blown up with air to make into ball-like shapes. There is a hole at the top of the bubble which helps the player breathe. However, the entire bubble is like an enclosed space. Since the suits are round, the players while playing the game get bounced and lot, flipped around, fall and even get upside down!
These soccer balls or suits are made mainly of two types of materials and are mostly 0.8 mm or 1.0 mm thick. They usually weigh around 23 pounds each on an average.
The suits are usually made from a material known as Polyvinyl Chloride or commonly referred to as PVC bubble soccer suits. These suits compared to the ones made from Thermoplastic Polyurethane or TPU, are more commonly available and are lighter on the pocket as suits made of TPU are usually 20% more expensive. The suits made of PVC are sturdy and last longer in wear and tear. The PVC suits can also be easily repaired than the other type of material that is used to make bubble soccer suits. Hence the longevity of these kinds of suits is much more than suits made of TPU.
