A whole new charity ball game

Tŷ Hafan is to launch the UK’s first bubble football tournament to raise money for the children’s hospice.

A mixture of zorbing and five-a-side football, the game sees players donning large inflatable bubbles and bouncing off each other whilst attempting to play a match. Originally the creation of Norwegian TV hosts Henrik Elvestad and Johan Golden, the sport has since spread through much of Europe.

Sali Thomas, Acting Head of Events Fundraising at Tŷ Hafan, told Alt.Cardiff that the charity hopes to raise between £10,000 and £15,000 from the event. “We thought it looked like great fun and that our supporters would love it,” she added.

The Cardiff City House of Sport will host the event on Sunday 10 November. Entry is £15 per person.
