Got Game Swimming Fun at LBJ Station
Summer has hit Texas and the heat has been bristling here in Dallas. Luckily, one of our key amenities here at LBJ Station is our fantastic and cool swimming pool. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing afternoon or a fun evening swim, our pool is accessible to all residents of our apartment community. This month we’ve decided to highlight our pool with some of our favorite pool games! Just remember to keep the pool rules in mind before you embark on some summer fun.
Pool noodles are a swimming pool classic, and since their invention, users have always been jousting. There’s no need for a horse, pole, and shield when a styrofoam noodle can do just as good of a job, right? The game is largely self-explanatory, with participants acting as medieval knights trying to knock the other off their noodle. The last remaining noodle rider gets crowned king.
All you need is an empty and clear 2-liter plastic bottle for this one. Fill the bottle with some pool water and then line all players up on the edge of the pool. One player throws in the bottle, and when the splash is heard the rest must turn around and try to find it. While it may not seem difficult, the bottle blends far more with the pool than you might expect!
Sharks and Minnows
This is essentially a game of tag. The game starts with a single shark who lurks in the middle (or one end) of the pool. The other swimmers are the minnows and begin the game at the other end of the pool. To begin the game, the shark yells, “Minnows in!” and the minnows dive or jump into the pool and try to swim to the other side without getting tagged by the shark. However, every minnow who does get tagged joins the shark’s team and helps tag other minnows. The last minnow to become tagged becomes the first shark the next time around.
Or, you could opt for a cannonball contest. Best cannonball wins! So jump into the pool at LBJ Station, soon, and enjoy the Dallas summer.
