Frequently Asked Questions

We know you have questions.  We have some answers.

What is Knockerball/Bubble Soccer?

It’s soccer…but with players enclosed in giant bubbles bumping, knocking, and rolling into each other. It’s like soccer, football and pinball all rolled together! Other games are also available, like bubble bowling, king of the ring, and bubble relays. It will probably be the most fun you’ve ever had!

Do you only play soccer in a knockerball?

No way!  Although Knockerball/bubble ball is a great way to play soccer without all those annoying yellow cards, there are many other games that can be played. 

Where do we play?

You pick the place and we come to you. We play indoors and outdoors, on soccer fields, parks, gyms, basketball courts, rec centers, schools, big backyards, etc. You will be responsible for booking your venue. If you need suggestions or ideas, we can help.

What areas do you travel to?

Our typical service area is the eastside of Lake Washington from as far north as Bothell to as far south as Renton. If you’re not sure if you’re in this range, just ask.  Will we do events outside of this area – you bet!  A travel/mileage fee may apply for events outside of our general service area.

Do I pay for your set up/clean up time?

No way. You pay for the time you play. However, we need access to your venue for a half hour before and after your rental for setup and tear down. You are responsible for any additional venue fees for us having access during this time.

How much do rentals cost?

Prices vary based on length of rental, location, and other factors. Fill out our rental form or call 425-749-9514  for more information.

How many people can play?

Games can be played with up to 10 participants (5v5) at a time, but make sure and have a few substitutions (4-6) as these games can be a great workout.  The number of people who will be able to participate will vary based on the length of the rental and the number of Knockerballs rented. 

How much space do I need to play?

A standard 5v5 game works great on a venue the size of a full sized basketball court or about half a standard soccer pitch.

What is the payment process?

After talking with us, you’ll be directed to our secure payment system. Full payment is due upon booking. If you prefer to pay by check, we’ll instruct you on how to mail it to us. Checks must clear before the rental.

Do I need to fill out a waiver?

Yes you do. If you are a minor, your parent or guardian will need to sign. We advise you to save time and printout (here), fill out, and sign the waiver prior to the event.  Please remember, no waiver, no play!  We will have extra copies of the waiver form with us at each event, but for anyone under the age of 18, you must have a parent or legal guardian sign the waiver. Fill out a Waiver >>

Are there height, weight, age restrictions?

There is no age restriction. Currently, we require players to be 5 feet or taller AND less than 250 lbs. This is purely for safety reasons. However, different body types outside of this range may be able to fit. Just ask us.

Is Knockerball safe?

Absolutely! There’s a soft cushion of air between you and everything else. It is literally like being wrapped in bubble wrap!

What should I wear?
  • Athletic attire and shoes (no cleats please)
  • Eye glasses are acceptable only if you are practically blind without them. We still advise you to wear contacts as your glasses may break.
  • Knee pads are provided for all participants.
  • No hats (it’s just going to fall off)
  • No watches, jewelry, car keys, cellphones, or accessories.  Basically, don’t put anything in the ball that could scratch or puncher it or you don’t want to lose!
Do I need to provide anything?

You only need to provide the location and the players. We’ll take care of the rest.

What if there is bad weather during my rental?

We will assess each situation individually. Generally, we will wait a half hour to see if the conditions clear, if the venue permits. If they do not, or if the forecast isn’t favorable, or if the weather renders the field unusable (too muddy), we reserve the final decision to cancel the rest of the rental. If at least 50% of the rental was performed before the delay/cancellation, no makeup date will be issued. If less than 50% of the rental was performed, a free makeup date may be booked for the remaining time. Travel fees may apply.
