In most sports, player-to-player contact is forbidden. A few sports, such as football and hockey, allow players to make contact, but the contact isn’t the driving goal of the game. 

But for one emerging sport, contact is what gets the game going. That sport: Knockerball.

Participants of all ages were able to “get in the bubble” the morning of Saturday, April 28, at Commissioners Park, as the Frankfort Park District teamed up with Knockerball Chicago to bring the fun to the suburbs.
