Registration is under way for the city of Richland’s new bubble ball soccer league.
Bubble Ball soccer, or Knockerball, has been gaining traction in Europe, Australia and Japan, and is quickly spreading to the United States, according to a release from the city.
Players wear inflatable spheres, or bubbles, made from clear PVC plastic and play soccer for four quarters per game. The result is a fast-paced, action-filled game of soccer, where players spend half their time bouncing, spinning and trying to stay upright.
