Ceiling Soccer Rules• Same rules as soccer – but the game is played by two teams using suction cups (toilet plungers) to be suspended from the ceiling• A helium-filled ball is used instead of a soccer-ball. Similar rules as soccer. The goal is to put the helium ball into the adversaries’ goal. Points are counted as in ping-pong.• If a player looses his/her grip and falls down onto the cushioned floor, the player needs to walk to his/her team’s own goal, climb back to the ceiling and then advance back onto the field from there. There is a huge incentive not to fall as if you do fall, the team looses a player for several critical minutes…

Great for today’s hectic schedule!
