Special Events




Friday, August 4th from 5pm to 9pm & Saturday, August 5th from 10am to 4pm at Claudia Driscoll Park 
Climb inside a giant ball to run, flip, fly and bounce! We will kick off the event with a night of Freestyle nockerball so interested folks can try it out.  Then on Saturday, spend a day in the sun enjoying the hilarity that ensues when teams bounce their way through either Knocker Soccer or Bumper Balls.  Teams will have 35 minutes to score as many points possible.  Teams need a minimum of 8 people with 5 active players during a game.  Players will be traded out to ensure no one gets overheated while playing.

About Knockerball Activities & Games:

Climb inside a huge soaped up ball, run to pick up speed, then jump on a line of tarps and slide as far as you can go!

Knocker Soccer
Knocker Soccer is like a cross between tackle football and soccer. The players kick the ball around a field and try to send it into the opposing team’s goal, scoring points. To protect your goal, you may lunge yourself at someone on the opposing team as they try to get the ball in, throwing them off balance.

Bumper Balls
Two teams face off and the goal is to put every player on the opposing team down on the ground. Once a player touches the ground with their ball, they are eliminated. At the end of each round (five rounds total), the winning team earns the amount of points equal to the number of players they have remaining after all the opposing team are eliminated (two left standing equals two points). Whichever team has the most points after all five rounds is declared the winning team.
