It doesn’t take long for your inner child to emerge when you’re splish-splashing around a swimming pool under the hot sun, but if your pool party’s guests are all adults, games such as “Marco Polo” won’t necessarily please the guests. Instead, your pool supplies store in North Haledon, NJ put together a fresh list of games for adults that combine fun with just a little competition.

  • Pool Pong
    • Provided you’re enjoying alcohol responsibly, grab a few plastic cups and use some ping-pong balls for a twist on the traditional party game of beer pong. Your “pool pong” game needs a floating raft on which to carefully balance the empty cups. Then, divide your group of adults into teams; let the raft float between the teams and take turns tossing the ball toward the cups. Make the losing team hop out of the pool and top up the drinks of those on the winning team.
  • Sports Themed Games
    • The accessories you have to buy don’t have to be elaborate. A volleyball and net can make for hours of fun or an afternoon of water basketball. Try something different such as water polo to keep the party going.
  • Noodle Jousting
    • This is perfect for guests with a competitive side! Each competitor has a foam noodle and sits on an inflatable object. The goal of the game is to try and knock your competitor into the water in a game that mimic traditional jousting.
  • Invisi-Bottle
    • A plastic soda bottle with the label removed serves as the focal point for this game. Fill the bottle with water and have your guests sit on the edge of the pool with their eyes closed and toss the bottle into the center of the pool. After hearing the splash, everyone must dive down and try to find the bottle. The issue is with the clear bottle and a mass of bodies makes it tough to find.

Now get your next pool party planned!
