5 Fun Swimming Pool Games for Families

Jul 26, 2021

Everyone wants to spend their summer in a beautiful fiberglass pool from Narellan Pools, but there are only so many hours you can float before you might need to liven things up with pool games. Here are 5 fun swimming pool games for adults.


Marco Polo—no relation to the famous explorer—might be a simple game, but it’s not just for kids! At its core, Marco Polo can be summed up as water tag, with one person covering their eyes and calling “Marco!” while the other players move out of reach and say “Polo!” in response. Marco Polo can be played with any number of people, which makes it great for pool parties.

Can’t Touch This

Keep Away is another game for two or 20 players!. All you need is something to throw: a beach ball, pool float, or even a tennis ball. It’s up to you! Thanks to Narellan Pools, you can play Keep Away in any type of fiberglass pool you want – whether it’s shallower with a flat bottom like the Nirvana or Eden or a pool with a nice deep end like the Symphony. No matter your desire, Narellan Pools has a pool that’s right for you!

Serve It Up

Volleyball is a great choice for adults who crave a bit of health, competition, and exercise! You can even play it without a net. All you need to do is mentally divide the pool into two halves. The first team to score a predetermined number of points, typically ten or eleven, wins. If you do want a floating net, many types are available. 

Close to Home

Not all pool games play for points like volleyball. You can easily use your fiberglass pool for homemade games. Try swimming races or laps, deep-diving for pool rings contests, or anything in between. For kids, try the tag game sharks and minnows—in which every person tagged by the designated shark becomes a shark themselves. Don’t be afraid to adapt games to your own gathering and make great memories that way!

Magic Eye

Underwater scavenger hunts can test even the keenest of eyes. Use any object you want, but to make it really interesting, grab a clear plastic bottle, fill it with water and let it sink to the bottom of the pool. Whoever finds it first is the winner! This game might seem easy, but it’s harder than it seems. 

These 5 fun swimming pool games are just a few suggestions to liven up your next poolside gathering.
