SKWIM™ PLAYER COUNT:  Determined by "Lagoon" (pool) Size
 
Premier SKWIM™ is played in an Official Lagoon size of 40 meters by 20 meters.    However, Competitive, Recreational, and Family SKWIM™ can be played in a variety of pool lengths and lane widths (assuming lanes are 6-8 feet in width).  We refer to lane width because lane locations are an easy place to connect the boundary sides for SKWIM™. You simply need 3 lanes to play SKWIM™, or a minimum width of about 18 feet.
