Swimming Games for Pool Time

Swimming Games for Pool Time
Summertime is pool time, and while it’s great to simply relax poolside and soak up the sun, sometimes what you need is a pool game to keep things moving. We’ve collected some classic pool games for you to try out this summer.

Marco Polo
This is a classic pool game, named after a 13th-century Italian explorer who lived in China and kept a detailed record about his adventures. (Why the pool game is named after him is a mystery.) It is essentially Blind Man’s Bluff played in the water, with a couple of variations. The “blind” person calls out Marco, and the other players must answer Polo, to assist Marco in trying to find them. For detailed rules, check out this website.

Sharks and Minnows

This is essentially a game of tag. The game starts with a single shark who lurks in the middle (or one end) of the pool. The other swimmers are the minnows and begin the game out of the water at one side of the pool. To begin the game, the shark yells, “Minnows in!” and the minnows dive or jump into the pool and try to swim to the other side without getting tagged by the shark. However, every minnow who does get tagged joins the shark’s team and helps tag other minnows. The last minnow to become tagged becomes the first shark the next time around.

Dolphin Race
Another great classic pool game that doesn’t require any special props or toys is the great dolphin race. The objective is simple: swim the farthest distance underwater. Two or more people begin on one side of the pool, and the person monitoring the race starts them off by counting to three. On three, the swimmers submerge, kick off from the wall, and try to swim all the way to the other side without taking a breath. Especially strong swimmers can do a flip turn on the opposite wall and attempt to swim back. The person who swims the farthest without taking a breath wins.
