Bubble ball festival coming to Toronto this spring

Giant bubbles are no longer for the pariahs and giant hamsters of society - they're now for athletes too (or "athletes," if you wish). Bubble ball is experiencing a rise in popularity, and apparently leagues exist not only in Toronto and Vancouver but in places like Denver, San Diego, and Hong Kong.

If you haven't joined up with a Toronto league yet, you can get a chance to play Victoria Day Weekend at Toronto Bubble Ball Fest 2015, a charitable event that non-profit sperro.org are bringing to town.

The tournament will break players into teams of four, playing three fifteen minute games. The full list of rules can be found on Sperro's website. You must be between the ages of 18-35 to play - sorry, potential 36 year old bubble people, looks like you're going to need a fake ID.

To keep players' and spectators' energy up, there will be barbecue, refreshments, and tacos on site. Friendly reminder - you are not currently reading our April Fools post. Joining up is $20, or it's $5 to watch the fun from the sidelines.

Will you wear your Peter Pan costume to play soccer in a giant bubble? Let us know in the comments.

Toronto Bubble Ball Fest 2015 is May 18, rain or shine, at Crawford Academy Field. Proceeds will go to Build for Belize 2015.
