Increasing Attendance at the Pool

Bringing more paying patrons into your aquatic facility can make a big difference in your financial performance. And in this troubled economy, you might be looking to boost your attendance—and your bottom line—as much as possible. But if your pool is limited to a rectangular body of water where patrons either splash about or sit in the sun, you might find attendance waning as patrons look for more excitement in waterpark-like facilities elsewhere.

The good news is that you don't have to start from scratch and rebuild your pool. There are some simple measures you can take to bring more excitement—and patrons—back to your pool.

Q: We have an older, rectangular pool that has seen dropping attendance. We have a slide and a diving board, but swimmers seem bored with those. Is there anything we can add quickly and easily that will bring new excitement to the water?

A: If you're looking for exciting alternatives to the traditional slide and diving board, you can rest assured knowing you don't need to build a new facility. With safe, simple and easy-to-set-up modular sports inflatables, you can bring exciting new elements to your pool that will draw patrons in for a fun day on the water.

You can find a complete line of modular, interlocking, commercial-grade swimming pool inflatables that will bring sports events to your pool. Made of seamed welded 32-ounce PVC, these inflatables don't require continuous air flow, and they come in a wide variety of configurations, making it simple to reconfigure your pool to create new, exciting challenges.

Q: How can we use these inflatables to boost our swimmers' excitement and keep them coming back for more?

A: The modular sports inflatables can help you transform your pool into a circuit or an arena for an exciting sports competition. Your guests have never experienced games like this before.

Combine elements in various ways to create a championship. Participants will have a blast climbing cliffs, sliding, traversing a balance beam, testing how far they can jump and more. Set up one modular element to allow patrons to duel over the water, or provide inflatable kayaks for a game of kayak polo.

They'll never forget the fun they had testing their skills. Set up a team competition, or allow families to compete against one another for a fun sports day on the water.

Let them go at their own pace, or create a completely programmed sporting event with gold medals for the winners!

Q: What do we need to know about safety?

A: With products certified to comply with stringent European safety standards, you won't need to worry about safety. The equipment is safe, colorful and easy to use. Even better, it is designed to stimulate children of all ages, so no one will feel left out.

To ensure a safe competition, be sure to maintain the correct water depth and ensure the distance to the edge of the pool is sufficient.
