You’ll definitely want to head down to the Gloria Hayden Community Centre this Saturday at 1:30 pm. Fun to play and fun to watch, bubbleball is pretty much exactly as it sounds.

You play sports, but in a giant clear ball.

Organized by Laura Budd of Yorkton Pride, Budd stresses the point of bubbleball is simple.

“It’s fun! Being active is for everybody. All ages, all genders, all skill levels, lots of different types of games.”

The balls, which stand over four feet tall, are large enough to fit a child, but should you feel so inclined, they will also easily fit an adult.

“It is, after all, for all ages.”

“It doesn’t feel like it because you’re having so much fun,” said Budd, “but you really get a huge amount of exercise without thinking too much about it.”

Yorkton This Week will be on hand to cover the event, and a special web exclusive will be posted after the event as well as in the Wednesday edition of the paper.

To join in the fun, contact Laura Budd at (306) 795-5044, or via email at
