Summertime means taking full advantage of your swimming pool. So, to ensure that you and your family are truly making the most of your pool ownership, here are seven exciting summer pool activities for a legendary summer experience.
1. Pool Parties
Pool parties are the quintessential pool activity, with good reason. They present numerous opportunities for socializing with friends, neighbors, and family. However, as with any well-executed party, planning is key. So, keep these tips in mind to help ensure that you set your party apart:
- Provide your intended guests with ample advance notice of the party’s occurrence. This forethought accounts for the fact that you are not likely to be the only one planning a summer pool party. Thus, with advance notice, you, your family, and your friends can establish a timetable of events to avoid scheduling conflicts.
- Select a unique, fun-filled theme to ensure that your party is exciting for all attendees. However, you can also opt to go with the classics like luaus and beach party themes in a pinch.
- You can also include poolside activities.
- Remember to observe safety. If you expect to have a large gathering, it may be best to consider hiring a professional lifeguard. Additionally, you also have to see to your guests’ comfort. So, don’t forget to provide extra towels and sunscreen!
2. Swim-up movie nights.
Why not combine valuable time in the pool with a movie experience? You can transform your pool area into the ultimate water theatre using a portable projector, a good speaker system, some floating seats, and some refreshments.
Combine these elements with a good movie from a popular genre, and you will create an unforgettable movie-going experience for your guests.
The ambient conditions of a warm, lazy summer day provide the perfect atmosphere for some serious book reading. So gather up those titles you have been meaning to get to for a while now, find a nice spot in or around your pool and get settled. Then, you can immerse yourself in the pages of your latest literary delight, lulled by the soothing sounds and movements of the water surrounding you. But don’t forget to use a protective cover if you are using an electronic device in the water!
4. Simple gatherings
Memorable experiences don’t always have to involve numerous high-energy activities. Sometimes a simple gathering around a fire pit punctuated by intimate conversations and campfire food has an equally significant impact. Add to that the prospect of relaxing near a warm fire after spending the day frolicking in the pool, and you have an activity that emphasizes warmth, comfort, and deep relaxation with effortless ease.
You know the saying, ‘pics or it didn’t happen!’ So, why not use your pool’s appearance and the surrounding landscaping as the ideal backdrop for your photoshoots? You can use the atmosphere to inspire your creativity and help you create awe-inspiring pictures that document your time enjoying the summer with friends and family.
Swimming is a great workout that provides significant fat-burning capabilities. So please take advantage of your swimming pool this summer by using it to keep to your fitness goals and even set new limits on your abilities.
7. Water Games
Cultivate your children’s competitive spirit by organizing games or competitions in the swimming pool. This approach will allow them to draw maximum enjoyment from their time in the pool.
There is a vast array of pool game competitions from which you can choose, including pool noodle races, squirt gun races and even underwater treasure hunts.
So, this summer, remember that your swimming pool provides the ultimate space for you to ensure that your family has a legendary summer experience.
