Updated: Feb 11, 2019
For most people, the fondest memories are created during special holidays like Christmas or Thanksgiving but what about Summer? Yes! Summertime, the sun is out, the weather is warm, school is out, you can hear kids playing in the neighborhood and even the animals are all active and basking in the sunlight. Summertime has always been a season to let loose, to have fun and partake in fun activities and experiences.
You may be planning a vacation, hosting a barbecue in your backyard or catching up with your friends for brunch. No matter what you have planned, chances are high that you'll find yourself in or around a pool at some point. While swimming is fun, here are some other fun ways to spend time in the pool this summer:
1. Shooting Hoops
Who doesn’t enjoy watching or playing basketball? OK I know some of you are rolling your eyes at me and saying " Victor I don't watch or play basketball" but fear not, I promise you'll have a blast playing basketball in a pool. Basketball is a fun and competitive game to play whether outside or in a pool. There are a few things you'll need before playing pool basketball like; a basketball, a basketball hoop (in a pinch you could even use floats to shoot into for points) and probably swimming goggles.
Before starting the game, players can be split into teams and these teams can be named after your favorite basketball teams to make it even more fun. The next step is to pick the number of points a team will get to-to win the game, then you can start shooting for points and have fun.
2. Pool Volleyball
This is also another popular summertime sport that is fun and could be done as a team sport. Players are put into teams and then they compete against other teams. All you need to play this game is a net and a volleyball or beach ball. All that is left to do is to have fun and try to win.
3. Diving for coins
This is a fun pool game to do that is very popular and fun. It involves tossing coins into the pool and having participants diving into the pool to find as much as they can. Please be safe and make sure the water is deep enough before diving in. This is a competitive game that should get everyone laughing and having fun.
4. Dancing in the pool
While the pool party is going and people are eating, drinking and listening to music, you and your friends can get into the pool and show off your dancing skills. You can even make it competitive and offer a prize to the person with the best dance moves.
