What is Watermelon Ball?
Watermelon Ball is a fun unique swimming pool game combining components of football, basketball, and rugby in the water. The ball used to play Watermelon Ball is neutrally buoyant, which allows the ball to be passed up to 10 feet and dribbled like a basketball under the water.
Why does the ball look like a watermelon?
Watermelon Ball originates from a swimming pool game where players used an actual watermelon, the fruit, instead of a ball. Watermelons are nearly neutrally buoyant, they will sink in the water and slowly float to the surface. This feature makes them great for passing under the water and excellent for playing a football-like or rugby-like game in the water. To keep with the tradition of the original game, our Watermelon Ball has been designed to look, feel, and float like a watermelon with some additional features. The Watermelon Ball is extremely durable and can withstand repeated intense use. Also, the ball can be dribbled like a basketball under the water and can be passed longer distances underwater than the watermelon fruit. If you have ever played the original game it has just gotten a whole lot more fun with this new ball...and importantly less mess to clean up when the fruit version cracks open.
