Belly Flop Contest

There’s one wild and carefree activity that a lot of swimmers like to perform while having fun in their local pool, creek, or lake. Local radio station K-98’s Steve and Julie from the Steve and Julie show held a contest at the Oxford City Pools for all the big belly flop professionals. Belly flop champion, Damon Keel says the key is to remember to keep your head up and let the belly hit first. What a great way to usher in the first day of summer. Oxford City Pools are expecting greater numbers of swimmers and Lifeguard Ashley Harris says having fun is important, but safety comes first. Harris says that people engaging in rough play can also be a dangerous activity in the pool. The Oxford City Pool is open Monday through Saturday 11:00AM until 4:30PM and on Sundays from 1:00PM until 4:30PM. The cost for general admission is $2.00. Children under 2 years of age are free.
