Summer is all about enjoying the sun with family and friends, relaxing and soaking up the sun rays. As a Vancouver pool company, we understand the need to make the most of the few hot and sunny months, so we have hand picked a few of our favourite pool games to share with you.

Whether you’re looking for a casual game of inflatable darts after a long day’s work, or an intense game of pool basketball, these games will keep you entertained for hours.

Inflatable dart board 

Darts in a pool aren’t dangerous… when everything is inflatable. Try your luck throwing balls at the velcro dart board. Keep the game short range with kids, or play long distance to make it more challenging for adults. Either way, it is a game you can play from the comfort of your floating chair.

Gone are the days of kids sized basketball hoops on the side of the pool. Give a new definition to shooting hoops with the kids with this oversized floating ball and hoop. Host a dunk contest or pick up two and have the ultimate game of pickup basketball – either way you’re in for an afternoon of fun in the sun!

Floating ping pong

Challenge your kids to a game of floating ping pong. Whack the ball back and forth with floating paddles, and a regulation ping pong ball. If you’re looking to fill a whole afternoon, host a tournament with friends to find out who the ping pong champion is!

Floating corn hole toss

Beat the heat with a classic game of corn hole. Throw the floating beanbags into the hole to score points against your opponent. For a challenge, push the board into the deep end, or put it on the edge of the pool. This game is a great way to keep the kids entertained and above water.
