Dive in and Make a Splash
Summer is meant for splashing around in the pool with your family and friends. Whether you’re a seasoned pool owner, or you’ve just installed a brand new one, there are plenty of ways to have fun in the water. But did you know that there are some unique and fun pool activities that you can do to really enhance your swimming experience? In this blog post, we’ll be sharing some of our favorite tips for having a blast in your swimming pool.
Host a Pool Party
Hosting a pool party is the perfect way to showcase your pool and have fun with your friends and family. Make sure your pool is sparkling clean beforehand and set the mood by playing your favorite tunes. You can even add some fun pool toys like beach balls and inflatable rafts to really get the party going! If you’re feeling extra adventurous, you can even set up some pool games like volleyball or Marco Polo.
A night swim can completely transform your pool experience. There’s nothing quite like the calming feeling of floating under the stars with only the moon as your light source. To make your night swim even more magical, add some glow sticks or colored LED lights to your pool. If you really want to take it to the next level, consider setting up a poolside fire pit to roast some s’mores.
Who says you have to go to the theatre to enjoy a movie night? With some simple equipment and a great film, you can create an unforgettable pool movie night. Simply set up a projector and screen in your backyard and select your favorite movie. Float around on some pool tubes and enjoy the show! (Note: Please ensure all electrical equipment is safely positioned away from the pool area.)
Water games are a classic way to have some good old-fashioned fun in the pool. Grab some pool noodles and have a noodle fight or challenge your friends to a cannonball competition. For a more relaxed activity, invest in a waterproof deck of cards and play some poker in the pool. The possibilities are endless – just make sure everyone is safe and using appropriate water safety measures.
Diving Board and Slide Tricks
If you have a diving board or slide in your pool, you’re already at an advantage for having fun in the water. Impress your friends with some diving board tricks, like backflips or twists. For a slide, you can create some friendly competition by timing each other’s slide runs. Just keep safety in mind and follow all rules and regulations for your specific pool.
At the end of the day, your pool is all about having fun and creating unforgettable memories. Whether you’re hosting a pool party, night swimming, having a movie night, playing water games, or performing diving board and slide tricks, make sure you’re prioritizing safety while enjoying yourself. We hope this list of activities has inspired you to try something new in your swimming pool and make a splash!
