Media@Cranmore.com

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.

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/.
