Cranmore Scores with Weekly Knockerball this Summer

MEDIA CONTACT: Rebecca Deschenes

NORTH CONWAY, NH – Knockerball North Conway will be making its Cranmore debut this July on Tuesdays and Fridays throughout the summer. The “Grand Opening” will be part of Cranmore’s Americana Celebration on Tuesday, July 4th.

Organized “KnockerSoccer” games will take place in an 80ft by 40ft inflatable arena at the base of Cranmore’s North Slope. Open to guests 48” and up, 3 rounds of 4 minute games are played with up to 30 players during each time slot. Games start every half hour starting at 10am until 4:30pm. A variety of organized games can be played based on the number, size and age of participants.

A Knockerball is an inflatable ball with inner handles and adjustable shoulder straps, which is worn like a backpack. The ball is designed with multiple sheets of a higher grade durable TPU plastic and tension cups and cords, which allows participants to knock each other around without feeling trauma from the blow. Knockerball or “bubble soccer” has been gaining traction in Europe, Australia, Japan and elsewhere.

“We introduced KnockerBall to the Mount Washington Valley last summer and have seen a huge increase in popularity of the game.” said Matthew Milliken of KnockerBall, North Conway. “We guarantee a great time, and games normally break down into absolute laughter- it’s hysterical to watch and play.” he continued.

“We continue to seek ways to enhance our summer events and are excited to offer this unique and fun game as an ongoing piece of our events calendar.” said Cranmore President and GM, Ben Wilcox.

KnockerBall is valid with the purchase of a $13 Cranmore single ride ticket, or $65 6-pack of transferable tickets. A $10 upgrade can be purchased as an add-on to a Mountain Adventure Park, Aerial Adventure Park, Combo ticket or Summer Season Pass. Tickets can be purchased at Cranmore’s Ticket Office. Games are supervised and monitored at all times by trained staff to ensure safety of participants. Closed toed shoes are required. Games may be suspended due to heavy rain, high winds and thunder and lightning. For more information, visit http://www.knockerballnorthconway.com/.

Top 5 Tips for Family Fun on the Slopes!

As skiers and riders, we want our kids to love skiing and riding as much as we do.

How do you ensure that the youngest members of your family have a great day on the slopes and trails?

Here are a few tips:

  1. Make sure your children are dressed properly in water-and-wind-resistant clothing
    Cranmore Mountain Resort
    Cranmore Mountain Resort

    made for skiing and riding. A warm coat, pants and mittens or gloves are a must, as is a helmet for downhill skiing or riding. There are many stores in the Valley that offer winter gear (often at outlet prices too!), including the LL Bean Factory Store, Joe Jones’ Sun & Ski Sports, Bob & Terry’s Sports Outlet, Olympia Sports and EMS. Or stop by the ski shop at any of Mt. Washington Valley’s ski resorts or XC centers where you’ll find winter gear made for kid-comfort.

  2. Get the kids professionally fitted for boots and skis so that they have the best equipment possible. If you’d prefer to rent equipment for the season, you can check with Stan & Dan’s, Bob & Terry’s, Joe Jones’ or Great American Ski Renting Company in North Conway and your favorite ski resort or XC center for rentals. A season-long rental at Bob & Terry’s Sports Outlet comes complete with a kid’s season pass to Bretton Woods too.
  3. Bring snacks! Grumbling stomachs lead to grumpy skiers and riders, so fill your pockets with easily accessible and easy-to-open snacks for the kids to munch on throughout the day. If you keep your kids fully fueled and energized, they’ll be more likely to enjoy their time out in the snow.
  4. Sign up for a kids’ lesson. All ski resorts and XC centers offer lessons that are age-appropriate and meant to teach your children the building blocks of the sport in a safe environment with certified instructors.
  5. Go have fun in the snow with them! Let the kids see how much you enjoy being out on your skis and boards, and they’ll soon love it too. Bring along the video camera so you can relive the fun afterward too.
