Where did the idea came from?
The vision was always to be innovative & creative. Some inspiration we got from seeing the videos on the internet but then those were not done commercially. After a lot of research, testing & feedback we thought it was ready to get live.
Also, Dubai always is the best place to introduce something new & with the love for football among the local crowd is motivated us to proceed. Moreover, Life size gaming concept is trending a lot and if you can have it indoor with the air conditioning, then does not get any better.
Do you want expand to other places in the UAE or GCC in the near future?
Yes we definitely want to expand, infact we have offers from other GCC countries like Bahrain, Kuwait, etc. Also people from India are showing lot of interest for franchising.
Companies and private persons are welcome?
Yes Corporates & Private parties is our main target market. We do high volumes of birthday parties & corporate events in UAE. These life size games are ideal for group activity which are built on objectives like team building, motivation, fitness, mental & physical well-being, fun & excitement.
Catering is included?
Yes we can arrange catering from live buffets to snack boxes. Also if customer wants to bring in their own preferred catering we allow space for that.
You also organize Leagues & Tournaments?
Yes we organize Sports Leagues and Tournaments for corporates, schools & University. We can have tournaments at our facility as well as at an outdoor venue.
Is it also possible to enjoy your activities elsewhere? For example in someone’s garden or in a company?
The Snookball (aka Footpool) can be moved around and enjoyed in our own facility.
You have a gorgeous business here, what’s your biggest dream?
Yes indeed it is a gorgeous business because we feel we bring a lot of laughter, fun & happiness in people’s life when they play our games. For that moment at least they forget their troubles, life problems, etc.
Biggest Dream would be to see the games become popular not only as amusement but also as a competitive sport. Something like Snookball or Human Foosball being a game at Olympics or Common Wealth Games.
