Some fun things to do in a swimming pool include playing water-related games, such as relay races with sponges, and diving for sunken treasure using pennies or small toys. The addition of a water slide takes the common cannon bomb or belly flop water activities to the next level.
Classic games played on land, such as volleyball and basketball, can also serve as entertaining water activities in swimming pools. Nets installed on the sides of swimming pools, and the use of lightweight balls, allow the easy transition of these classic sports into active water games. Standard table games, including ping pong and hockey, are used as floating games in swimming pools as well.
