Even though pumpkin spice lattes and fall decorations are out (and a cool breeze may be hitting your neck of the woods), it doesn’t mean pool season is over. In fact, you may be able to enjoy your swimming pool throughout the entire fall season! Which means, there’s no better time to invest in a pool game set. Here are some classic games to splash around with, and that fit into every family’s budget.
Floating Basketball Game
The floating basketball game is a win/win—whether you live alone, or have a family of five. You can choose from a variety of styles, and depending on the brand, it will only cost you between $15-50. Most of the floating basketball game kits don’t require any assembly, and include everything you need to shoot and swish with your kids: the inflatable net, and two basketballs. Float it out to the middle of your pool (place it in the deep end if you’re playing with your teens for an added challenge), pick teams and you’ve got hours of active fun ahead.
The Toss n’ Splash
If you have children, then you know the name of that game is wearing them out with physical activity! The Toss n’ Splash is the perfect choice—it’s cheap, a much healthier choice than playing video games indoors, and they’ll be stimulated for hours. The Toss n’ Splash is a round target game which comes with a few game balls and an inflatable game. It’s perfect for six years old and up, so divide your teams up kids vs. adults and they’ll be entertained all afternoon.
Next to basketball, volleyball may be the next most popular (and the most affordable) game set to bring to the pool (for kids and adults alike). You can find a sturdy volleyball set under $40 online, and the assembly is easy (simply connect the two weighted side poles to the net, and you’re off and running!) Most sets include the standard seven-inch net, the weighted poles and the volleyball.
Are you hosting a party and want to make it the easiest as possible? The port-o-pong couldn’t be simpler. Three feet wide and six feet long, it’s the perfect beer pong game that can be used year-round. Blow it up, and you’ll find ten cup holders on each side, and get your drink on—it’s the most affordable and easiest setup of an adult pool game you’ll find.
No matter what pool game set you choose, you’ll discover that it’s never been easier to set up your party—or a lazy afternoon with family—with fun, and affordability.
