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/.

“I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know that Home Run Sports Training Center is now open for business. We are excited to bring this unique facility to the valley in hopes to bring kids and adults of all ages an opportunity to enhance their athletic skills year round. Here at Home Run, we offer batting cage rentals, full facility rentals, individual and multi-player lessons, classes, summer camps and birthday parties. We also have a fully stocked pro shop including baseball/softball bats, gloves, batting gloves, helmets, shirts, jackets and more.

We will offer various leagues to run within the facility as well. From flag football to soccer and dodgeball to whiffle ball, we will have something that appeals to players of all ages. Currently, we are running an adult flag football league (which we will also run during the winter) and have 6 competitive teams for this 6 week season. These leagues will be offered to players, both at the adult and youth level.

Baseball/softball themed birthday parties will be a hit. The birthday kid and his/her friends will spend an hour on the turf with our staff. We will play an assortment of games from relay races to accuracy throwing, ground ball knockout to a full baseball/softball or kickball game. The party then moves to our party room where the kids will enjoy cake and presents. The special birthday kid will receive a complimentary Home Run t-shirt.

In closing, we hope to see you at the facility in the near future to enjoy the sport of your choice.”

Warm regards,
