Contact: Julie Lewis
Photos and testimonial: Below!
The 15th August 2016 marked the second year that we had put on bubble football activities for the well respected Summer rowing camp in the grounds of Shrewsbury School. The relationship began in 2015 when Julie was referred our details from our close relationship with Shrewsbury School where we often visit entertaining the various houses at the school, often on a Sunday afternoon.
I'm sure Julie wont mind me saying that she had a little concern about the claustrophobia potential within the bubbles. If you've never been inside one of our bubbles before and have just seen a picture, that could be a sensible question. I've been stuck in a lift before, I understand! In reality, if claustrophobia is ever an issue, it is before you have actually been inside a bubble. They are easy to manoeuvre inside, with plenty of room, and comfortable too. Hey, you could say its actually like being inside a big bubble!
So, anyhow. Julia wanted a fun activity for teenagers, boys and girls that was safe and inclusive. After the success of the first year in 2015, they were looking for much the same. 25-30 players, 2 hours, lots of different games. As with all our educational establishment customers, we understand that they like a mixture of movement skills, new experiences, team work, building self confidence and memorable fun.
With astro turf options on standby in case of rain, it was actually a glorious day as those watching were able to sit and enjoy (I could tell by the loud oo's, aaa' and laughs!) in the lovely August sunshine.
Here is what the course organiser Julie said about this years session:
"This was our second year using West Midland Bubble Football and again it ran seamlessly from start to finish due to Ed's organisation.
Our age range was 11 to 16 years and the students were split into groups but it was just as much fun to watch as taking part. Even the most nervous students wanted to join in, helping them gain confidence.
The students enjoyed a variety of team games, developing communication and movement skills. Above all it is fabulously good fun and an excellent way to spend an afternoon!
We will be booking again for another session next year! "
