It’s certainly not cricket - but it provides plenty of bouncers!
They’re used to bowling and facing them but yesterday Hampshire’s cricketers became bouncers.
The County Championship side enjoyed a pre-season training session with a difference as they took on ‘bubble football’ with amusing results.
Keep an early eye out as Matt Coles sends fellow all-rounder Liam Dawson flying at the start of this hilarious short video.
Hampshire wicket-keeper Adam Wheater was certainly a big fan of the team-bonding exercise: “Bubble football could easily be the best pre-season activity ever,’ he said.
‘Speaking on behalf of the team it will be very hard to beat and we can’t wait for it again next year.
‘Be warned, the little guys spend most of the time flying from bubble to bubble and being smashed by bigger guys!
‘The overall experience is a solid 10/10 and I would recommend any sporting team to get it in their pre-season schedule.’
