Four sets of twins staff swimming pool
Two sets of identical twins and two sets of fraternal twins mean swimmers will be seeing double at US leisure facility.

FAMILIES ARE DOING double duty this summer at a swimming pool in the US which has FOUR sets of twin on staff.

The crew at the Bexley Park Pool near Cleveland, Ohio includes two sets of identical twins: 17-year-olds Anna and Maia Wachter, and 18-year-olds Ariana and Amara Jester.

Pool manager Lauren Meek told The Plain Dealer newspaper of Cleveland that she has no trouble telling the Jesters apart but can get confused by the Wachter girls, both lifeguards.

The pool’s two other pairs are fraternal twins.

Meek says it’s common for siblings to work at the pool but having four sets of twins is very unusual.

The pool in South Euclid has 34 employees, meaning nearly one out of every four is a twin.

All we want to know is: will they be putting on a demonstration of synchronised swimming?
