If you are looking for adult entertainment, this beer pong pool float will be a big hit at your party. Not only does it have a 10 cup set up on each side for play, but it also has a built-in cooler in the middle for food and beverages.

If you are looking for a more structured game, “Jump! Dive!” is a popular choice.

The concept is similar to “Red light! Green light!”, except it has been adapted for a pool setting. A player is selected as the caller, while all other players line up together on the side of the pool. The caller yells out, “Jump!”, or “Dive!” and the players obey the command. Whoever does not follow the command is out. This continues until there is one player left, who is declared the winner. A word of caution: for safety, make sure the space players are diving into is deep enough. Also, players should be spaced out far enough so they are not hitting each other when they are jumping or diving.

“Soaked Shirt Relay” is another fun game for your swim party. You will need two oversized t-shirts for this game. Guests are split into two teams and line up at one end of the pool. The relay starts with the first person in each team wearing an oversized t-shirt while they swim across the pool and back. When they return, they must transfer the shirt to the next person on their team. The first team to complete the relay wins! This game is sure to get a lot of laughs!

A swim party creates fun and memories for everyone. Whether you choose an under the sea adventure theme for a birthday party, a nautical theme to mark a special occasion, or a luau for a fun celebration, these party favors and game ideas will delight guests of all ages.
