Jousting tournament.

Divide everyone into knight/horse pairs. Arm knights (top members) sitting on horses (bottom players' shoulders) with jousting lances (pool noodles). Two sets face off against each other, battling rivals until winning duos knock opposing knights from their horses or both halves fall. 

Raft Attack 

Teens climb onto inflated rafts in teams. Then they wrestle to push competing players off into the pool. The crew that manages to keep one final contestant on top of its raft becomes the mighty victor. 

Wet T-Shirt Relay 

Line two teams along the same side of your pool across from extra-large T-shirts on the decking. Both squads' initial competitors must swim over to the opposite side, grab the tops, and throw them on quickly before swimming back. Then they remove their shirts, hand them off to the next players who put them on to repeat the relay race. Whichever group runs through all participants first wins. 

Sunny Beach Ball Relay 

Provide a pair of goofy sunglasses and beach ball per dueling team. Entrants wearing sunglasses take turns swimming across your pool and back with inflated balls underneath them. If glasses fall off or submersed balls pop up, contenders must restart. They hand off sunglasses and beach balls to their replacements after successful rounds. The group finishing first triumphs. 

Poker Chip Race 

Dump plastic poker chips into your pool. Assign point values by colors. Teams alternate with contestants racing underwater to collect stacks. After the bottom dwellers retrieve all playing pieces, tally up the riches to declare the winning gang. Or guests can dive in pairs to find out who resurfaces with the highest quantity.

Sunken Treasure 

Throw colorful plastic necklaces and coins into your pool so everyone can become pirates scavenging the watery depths for sunken treasure. Take turns to discover which merciless matey can recover the most jewels and doubloons in just one breath. 

Diving for Eggs 

Place plastic trinkets in just a few fillable Easter eggs. Fling them into the pool. Participants dive to retrieve as many as they can. Winners salvage eggs containing prizes. 

Greasy Watermelon 

Coat a watermelon with a thick petroleum jelly layer. Line up two groups in the water on opposite sides of your pool. Throw the slick melon in between them. Everyone rushes to grab the slippery fruit. All players tapping it on their team's pool edge earn one point. The first crew scoring 10 wins. 

Grape Toss

Space flags, mini cones, or other visible indicators evenly on pool deck surfaces to partition your pool's length into four-foot sections. Split your group into pitcher/catcher pairs. Thowers stand in shallow water, holding grape bags. Catchers line up with the first guideline. Pitchers lob grapes until one lands in catchers' mouths without helping hands. Successful catchers move backward one divider for a harder challenge. Whichever team reaches the farthest distance triumphs. 

Hot Beach Ball 

Everyone forms a big circle in your pool. Toss the ball back and forth. Like the classic Hot Potato game, pretend that it's too warm to hold onto very long. Play beach-themed music. Stop it at random times, eliminating whoever's holding the ball. Keep the fun going until you declare the lone survivor the winner. 


Inch down a parallel bamboo pole for every round of this classic poolside party game. Balance and flexibility while bending backward are essential. Bodies must clear the height without grazing the bar. Nothing may make contact with the ground except feet. Guests compete to discover who can go the lowest. Enjoy a water version with challengers swimming under a pool noodle without touching it.
