You might not get to walk down the players tunnel in the Madejski Stadium like the stars of Reading FC, but we’ve go the next best thing: bubble football! This hilarious activity has put the fun back into five-a-side. Not to be taken seriously, this is for stag parties who want to do something bonkers that’ll have everyone in stitches.
Can you get the ball and boot it into the goal wearing a huge plastic bubble round your head and middle? Trying to play football with only your legs free is trickier than it sounds!
Bubble football is comedy gold! What could be funnier than a bunch of stags rolling around, legs kicking in the air, snorting with laughter and swearing like troopers? The Sunday leaguers who take it seriously get in a right strop when they can’t get to the ball, which is great for those with two left feet! It’s all in the name of fun and you get to smash into each other at top speed without breaking any bones. What’s not to love?
When you’re all bounced out, roll over to one of Reading’s historic boozers for traditional post-match beers by the Thames. That’s Saturday smashed!
In a nutshell:
