The Great Big Holiday Splashdown Competition

We’re really excited to tell you about our summer campaign which follows on from our Great Big Holiday Splashdown event this Easter.

We know that beach holidays are all about having fun in the sun; whether that’s with family or friends, there’s nothing more precious than the quality time spent with loved ones. So this summer we’re celebrating the good old holiday inflatable in our fun-filled  splashdown competition – that could see you winning one of four £250 On the Beach holiday vouchers!

From lilo races to summer selfies, all you have to do to enter is take a photo or video of you having fun in the sun and send it to us on social media with the hashtag: #OTBSplashdown. Don’t forget to include our @handle as well so we can count your entries:

Facebook: @OntheBeachHolidays

Twitter: @OntheBeachUK

Instagram: @OntheBeachHolidays

Alternatively, you can email your entry to with the subject line ‘OTBSplashdown’.

The competition is open now until 31st August and we’ll be picking our favourites from cutest splasher to the biggest splash, so anyone is welcome to get involved.

If you need some inspiration, take a look at our wonderful Splashdown kids showing you how it’s done…

Lilo race

Exactly what it says on the tin – line up on your lilos and get to the other side of the pool and back. The first one to get back to the starting line wins!


This one’s all about accuracy… Try and get your rubber ring over the other person – make it more difficult by increasing the distance between you and the target.

Beach ball blow up

How quickly can you blow up your pool inflatable? Try it as a race and see who wins!

Wat-er Poser

We want to see some seriously creative pool jump poses. From mid-air star jumps to superman leaps, let your imagine run wild – just make sure the pool is deep enough and always double check with lifeguards what you’re allowed to do around the pool.

Animal race

Whale? Dolphin? Crocodile? Lobster? Which animal will you choose..? Try racing as many inflatable animals as you can across the pool and find out which is the winner!

Hold that pose

This one takes some serious balance. We want you to go to the centre of the pool, stand on your inflatable and hold a pose for as long as possible without falling off… have you got the skills?


Reckon your little ones have some serious cute-factor? We want to see them getting involved too! Send us some cuteness overload of your teeny tots having fun in the sun…

Rubber ring jump

The classic game of jumping from the side of the pool into a rubber ring – just make sure you’re jumping far enough away from the edge of the pool!

Biggest Splashdown

The holy grail of Splashdown fun and perhaps the simplest of all the games – All we want you to do is jump into the pool and make the biggest splash you can – but don’t forget to make sure you’re respectful of those sunbathing around you!

Get your entries in by Wednesday 31st August and the winners will be announced by Monday 12th September in our Splashdown Awards.

Good luck and don’t forget to have lots of fun… Let’s Splashdown!

The Splashdown Competition boring bit

Always make sure you and your family stay safe in the sun – make sure kids are topped up with sun cream and you have an eye on them at all times.

Don’t forget to read the terms and conditions here before entering.
