We are currently getting bids on a 14 x 28 inground vinyl pool. We initially decided to build a sports pool, with 2 shallow ends and 5.5 deep in the middle, where you could put a slide. Our children (15, 13 & 9) subsequently told us that these pools are considered 'lame' because you can't retreive dive sticks, swim to the bottom, etc.
What has been everyone's experience and what has been most popular with the kids? The kids and their friends will be the heaviest users of the pool, and my husband and I will use it for 'floating' around, etc. where depth does not really matter.
