Amsterdam Bubble Football FAQS
Questions about Amsterdam Bubble Football
Do we have to play football?
No! British Bulldog is just as popular, and we’ve got lots of other ways to get you running into each other. And of course Sumo Bubble Wrestling! And we love doing suicide runs at each other to solve disputes, and we’d love to hear from you if you’ve got some other crazy way of using our bubbles!
What is the smallest group size?
Our minimum group size for Bubble Football Bookings are for a group of 8 people with 8 bubbles. You can play with just 6, but less than that isn’t so much fun.
What is the biggest group size?
For a one hour booking the maximum number we would recommend is 16 players. This is because when you are with more than 20 people you won’t get enough time on the pitch. So with more than 16 people we would recommend to play an 1,5 hour game.
What if my group is bigger than 16?
You can book an 1,5 hour or 2 hour session for a reduced price. Feel free to contact us when you are with a large group or have any questions.
What equipment is included in a Bubble Football party?
Typically the equipment included will be inflatable bubbleballs, pitch hire, vests (when needed), instructor, goals.
What should I wear?
The same clothes you would wear for a game of 5-a-side football or circuit training. Shorts, a t-shirt and trainers are ideal (no studs or astro boots please). It gets hot in the bubbles so we advise bringing a change of clothes for after the game.
What should I bring?
Bring a bottle of water as bubble football is thirsty work. A change of clothes for after the game… and a good sense of humor!
Why do you take a deposit?
Your deposit goes towards pitch time and staff costs involved in the booking process. Because of this we are unable to refund it in the case of a cancellation.
Do you do bubble football for stag or hen parties?
Absolutely! We love Stag do or Hen Do groups, they’re great fun! We recommend starting your bachelor or bachelorette party with bubble football as our venues is ideally placed for getting drinks, food, and fun nearby afterward. Please do not drink before playing bubble football though – if we believe you are unfit to play we will not allow you to take part and no refund will be offered.
Can I book for more than one hour?
Yes! We recommend groups over 16 players to make an 1,5 hour or 2 hour booking for a reduced price. Simply book more time and the discount will be automatically applied.
How many Bubbles do you provide?
With all groups we provide 8 bubbles and rely on 4 a side games with teams rotating. We found this to be the most enjoyable way of playing the sport as it does get tiring and people do enjoy a well earned rest every now and then along with being able to watch their mates get thrown around!
What if I don’t know exactly how many people are going to play?
That’s fine. Simply make a booking for the approximate number you expect. Please just update us via email when you have the exact amount of people.
What ages can play?
We accept players 12 years and older.
PLEASE NOTE THAT EVERY PLAYER UNDER 16 YEARS WILL NEED A SIGNED PARENTAL CONSENT FORM IN ORDER TO PLAY. ONE RESPONSIBLE ADULT MUST ALSO BE PRESENT FOR THE ENTIRE SESSION.
I’m pregnant, can I play?
Bubble football is a very physical activity with sudden, unpredictable impacts. For this reason, if you are pregnant we cannot allow you to play.
Do you hire out your equipment?
Yes we do. Please contact us when you want to rent out the bubble balls. And we can come to you with the bubbles/
Is bubble football safe?
It is a contact sport and so there is, of course, a risk of injury, just as there would be in a traditional football game. However as long as you follow our safety instructions, avoid reckless tackles and have no existing medical conditions that could be agitated by contact, injuries are no more likely than in a game of 5-a-side football. Check out our safety rules.
When do I have to pay the full booking amount?
We will send you an email 7 days before your booking to ask for the final payment online. You can however pay the remaining balance of your event in cash on the day if you would prefer!
What’s the address of the pitch?
Our mail indoor location is next to Amsterdam Sloterdijk Station. Address: Rhoneweg 32, 1043 AH Amsterdam
