New Sport Discovered

“What is that?” I interrupted my daughter who was telling me about her new job as we took a walk in her new Brooklyn neighborhood. I was pointing to the playing field across the street at Prospect Park. And I was thinking,  That is the craziest sport I had ever seen.”

Similar to a soccer game – 2 teams, 2 goals, 2 refs, and a ball. Yet, so crazy looking with the players moving inside a giant bubble! “Who thinks up this kind of stuff up?”

I showed my husband this picture once I returned home and his curiosity led him to send me an email from work on Monday that read:

Turns out it’s a thing.  You have to watch this video:  Soccer is even more fun in a bubble


When I forwarded his email with my daughter, she replied with this email:

Check it out:    Pick-up games are $65 PER PERSON!
 Now that I discovered a new sport called Bubble Soccer, any takers to join the next pick-up game?? I know where we can find one in Brooklyn!! Or maybe we all start a league in our hometown!

    I just saw one of those giant bubbles in a neighbor’s yard and thought that it really looked like fun. Little did I know there is such a thing as bubble soccer! I hope you try a game. It would make for a great slice of life! ~Amy

    Wow! I had seen bubbles for sale in a kid’s catalog and wondered about them.
    And here are adults!
    Your post makes me wish for more- what did it look like, how did they move in them?
    Can they see well, do you think?
    Curiouser and curiouser…

    I’ve seen games like that here in Austin. They are a hoot! I’m not into group sports, but I’d be willing to cheer a bubble soccer game from the sidelines.

    I’m thrilled that in our neighborhood, there are pick-up games of cricket during the school year!
