A1. You have to be 8 years old to play Zorball.
A2. Our bubbles are very well padded and your safety is our priority. Although you may get a few knocks on your legs (we recommend wearing jogging bottoms), we believe that injury is actually more likely in regular football. To minimise the risk of injury, participants must agree to our rules and safety guidelines before commencing play.
A3. Yes. The availability you see on this website is just a guide, and we are usually able to match your preferred time, date and place.
A5. The minimum is 8 players – for 4 aside. We do recommend having 15 players though to make 3 teams of 5. This will give participants much needed breaks – you will be surprise how tiring Zorball is!
A6. Great. Just make sure that the venue is either a sports hall, a 3G/4G/5G artificial pitch or grass. The pitch should be no more than 40 metres from a plug socket, so we are able to inflate and deflate the sorbs. It should also have reasonable access from the road/car park so that we can unload the equipment quickly and safely. We cannot play on concrete, gravel or sand-based astro-turf.
A9. YES! We encourage players to bring friends along to watch. After all Zorball is probably the funniest spectator sport around!
A10. Yourselves, sportswear, plenty of water and plenty of energy and enthusiasm! Oh, and camera phones if you want to get some action shots!
A11. The minimum number of participants is 8. We recommend having 10 or more so that we can play 5aside and opportunity for breaks.
A13. While it is possible to play Zorball in public spaces, you will need to obtain written permission from the council and/or space owner to do so. Please also remember that we need access to a plug socket to set up and pack down!
A15. Our media package includes high quality photographs from your event as well as a HD video highlights compilation which is 10-15mins long. You will be sent a link to download your files, which you are free to share with everyone who attended!
A16. We aim to send out media package download links within 7 days of your event. During busier periods, it can take up to 14 days.
