Knockerball is an indoor bubble soccer game that can be played 7 different ways!


Imagine the sensation and mobility of almost defying gravity, bouncing and flipping around a field of turf without putting any stress on your body. Knockerball® is like playing soccer, among other games, while wearing a protective bubble around your body. It is all about smashing into each other, bouncing around and rolling across the turf in inflatable Zorb like balls. The experience creates rip roaring laughter, exhilarating knocks, and rolls that will keep you coming back for more. It is truly a blast but we will warn you, games generally break down into knock down chaos with the only resulting pain being from laughing so hard and having way too much fun.

BattlegroundZ Knockerball® games are all 10 minutes long. Only 10 minutes you say? These games are a fantastic workout and can be quite exhausting! How many games are you willing to be challenged for? Don’t miss out on the fun, play now, we are discontinuing Knockerball® as of May 31, 2018.

How to Play

48″ or taller. Knockerball® can be played in 7 different variations. Check ’em out!

Two teams are formed. Each team begins at opposite ends of the field in front of their goal. A ball is placed in the center of the field. No positions or goalies needed. Referee blows the whistle and the game begins with each team moving forward to take control of the ball. Players “pass” the ball around the field to each other and attempts to score goals in the opposing team’s goal. One point is scored for each goal made. Players can bump other players at any time, OTHER than when they are already on the ground.

Goal: Be the winning team by having the most points scored. Make laughable memories.

One person stands in the center of the field. Everyone else starts on one of the field. Referee blows the whistle and all players on the side run to the other side. The player in the middle tries to knock the players down. If someone IS knocked down, then that player must join the player in the middle. Continue until only One player is left who is the WINNER!

Goal: Be the last player to be knocked down. Make laughable memories.

Two teams are formed. Each team picks a captain, a very brave captain! Each team should strategically plan to have some members protect the captain while the others head to attack the opposing team’s captain. Teams start on opposite sides. Whistle blows and the game begins. Every time a team’s captain is knocked to the ground, the other team scores a point.

Goal: Be the team with the most points. Make laughable memories.

A large circle is formed out of cones. Every man begins outside the circle, and fights for himself. The whistle is blown and game begins. Everyone tries to find a position inside the circle while bumping each other outside the circle. Referee randomly blows the whistle about 5 times during the game. Any player inside the circle when the whistle blows WINS!

Goal: Try be the player in the circle when the whistle blows.

Two teams are formed. Three Hula-Hoops are placed on the center line equally spread apart. Players exhaust each other for the first 9.5 minutes of the game by chasing, charging, bumping, and laughing at each other. In the last 30 seconds players should try to take a position in one of the Hula-Hoops and remain there when the whistle blows.

Goal: To be the team occupying the most Hula-Hoops at the final whistle of the game. Make laughable memories.

Referee blows the Whistle. Every man for himself. Once a player is taken off their feet they leave the field until next round. Last bubble standing is the winner!

Goal: Stay on your feet. Make laughable memories.

Ten players are positioned in 5 rows, such as a bowling pin layout; 5, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 in the front. Another player then stands about 15 feet in front of the “pins”, runs and hits the “pins” trying to knock them down. Once a “pin” is knocked down, he steps off to the side for the “bowler” to take a second attempt at knocking the rest of the “pins” down. The referee takes a count of the knocked down players to create a score for that player. Players set themselves up again and the bowling continues with another “bowler”.

Goal: To be the bowler with the most points. Make laughable memories.
