Some stag party activities are all about the adrenaline. Some are good for a bit of a giggle. And then there's bubble football! This afternoon classic is a ball-bouncing combination of both.

Derby's always been a footballing city. Ever since Derby County FC was founded in 1884, the streets around Pride Park have rung with the sounds of fans cheering on the Rams on a Saturday afternoon. Well, you lot might not quite scale the heights of skill needed to pull on a white shirt - but you'll certainly have an awesome time on your stag party!
The rules of bubble football are pretty similar to the rules of normal football. Get ball, beat defence, stick in net. The big difference lies in how you play! Championship footballers wear the lightest, most technical clothing and boots they can find. Your stag party will mainly be wearing Zorb suits.
A Zorb suit is exactly what it sounds like: a big blow-up ball, which you wear on your head, Also your body, and half of your legs. In fact, your lower legs are the only bits of you that aren't trapped in plastic! You don't even have arms to protect yourself when you fall - but that doesn't matter, because the bouncy suit will make sure you're completely cushioned every time you hit the deck.
