Get ready to #RelaxPlaySwim! We are introducing an awesome contest to reward you, our fans and customers! From Wednesday, May 13 to Sunday, June 14, the #RelaxPlaySwim contest will run.

What is #RelaxPlaySwim? Summer is on its way and we want to celebrate and engage our customers in the summer spirit. Check out this example of our NAMCO friends embracing the #RelaxPlaySwim attitude. We’re channeling summer and we don’t care who knows it! The contest starts at your local NAMCO store, where you’ll find the NAMCO and #RelaxPlaySwim backdrop, along with awesome toys and props to jumpstart your summer spirit.



Mostly, we want to say thank you to all of our dedicated customers over the years. NAMCO started as a small Mom & Pop pool store in 1962. As we have grown, we remain focused on the local communities that serve our customers. The #RelaxPlaySwim contest embraces summer and supports our customers by providing weekly random winners just for participating.

As part of the setup, then we asked for some help from friends and family. We wanted to show our fans how we get energized for the summer. Here are some outtakes from our “photo shoot” at a local NAMCO store. We hope everyone has as much fun as we did.

Thanks to the staff at the Manchester NAMCO for letting us have some fun. A special thanks to our photographer, AshleighPhoto for not only taking these amazing pictures, but also for letting her daughter lend us a helping hand. We think she might save some shots of her husband to make sure he mows the lawn instead of relaxing on the patio.
