CC photo #344: A fun game in our local pool

Don’t take my word for it, but I think this is an invention of our local head coach, Rúni Gaardbo, here at FLOT in Toftir, Faroe Islands: The kids are divided into two teams that must stay behind the lane ropes. The kickboards are arranged in pairs upright as shown on the photo, equal amounts on both sides, and each team is given an equal amount of many (soft) balls. The guys in the middle are assistant coaches resupplying the players with balls stuck in the middle lane. First team to shoot down all kickboards has won. Some choose to attack, some choose to defend. We call it ‘plátubólt’ (‘board ball’), and it is extremely fun :-)
