4. Dive Deep in Underwater Games - Retrieve rings from the Pool’s bottom

Underwater games like this are particularly suitable for swimming lessons as they are both fun and a workout. This game can be played with an unlimited number of people in the water. The person who retrieves the most rings out of the water with only one breath wins. To make the game more difficult, it’s best to scatter the rings all over the pool and not just in one place. This water game is also suitable to be played in open water (sea or lake), but in this case remember to use swimming goggles for better visibility.

→ With well-fitting swim caps for women, you are ideally equipped to fish as many rings out of the pool as possible.

Tired of swimming or diving? How about paddling? The air mattress race is a delightful activity especially suitable to be played in the sea or lake, because there is more space. This water game can also be played by as many people as you like. Everyone gets an air mattress, and the race begins! Each player has to sit or lie on their air mattress and may not leave it at any time during the race. Don’t forget to set a clear finish line that the winner must reach beforehand! 

Remember: Safety is paramount. Steer clear of water games when sea currents are too strong.
