I put my valuables in a backpack and leave it by the edge of the pool while I swim laps. Someone would have to be very aggressive to go into the pool area and steal my backback from the edge of the pool. And if I caught them, they would also be very sorry.

Who told you that you need a driver's license as photo ID? Your Villages ID has your photo on it. That is all that is necessary. I never bring my wallet or driver's license to the pools or the fitness centers. My villages ID card is all that is necessary for any activities here in The Villages.

He probably drives his car to pools. Let's you have to have your village I'd to get in, so,,,,,, means only villagers in the confines of the pool. So, why would there be thieves around????

Default HOt tub

Get one for home. Easy to maintain. We use ours every day all year long.

I'm a resident snow bird. My ID has no picture. Don't get me wrong we enjoy being here with all the activities. IMHO there's nothing that beats TV, if only the Morse family would have put it further south. But TV like all else isn't perfect. Hot tubs aren't much worse than the pools. Some days we get carded, others not.

I'm confused. How can you be a resident and not have a TV picture ID? And if you are just renting or using a guest pass, you can't use the sports pools. Assuming you're using the sports pools if you are swimming laps. If not, that brings up a whole 'nother ball of wax.

If someone wants to take a chance at snagging something at a pool while other pistol-packing Mommas & Poppas are sitting playing cards then I wish you good luck. Our pools are normally crowded.

A renter can get a resident ID for $50 and, thus, is free to use any and all facilities. The ID card is paper and a photo ID is also required.

Since the pool area is open for non-residents to use the bathroom, security can be an issue. I know of one resident who puts keys, phone, ID cards in a baggie with a note, “REMINDER. This phone is locked and traceable. I will prosecute.” Seems to have worked so far. But if you’re really worried, I’d use a waterproof fanny pack and waterproof phone case.

There have been a few thefts at the pools, but considering the use they get they really are few and far in between.
