Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tetherball Set We had this set up on the driveway and would come home to find any kids walking by stopping to play! It's a great product and provides hours of fun for everyone. Our only issue was that the seams on the ball eventually came apart. We have since replaced it. August 8, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Would have given it 5 stars, but... My kids love the tetherball set. Good old fashioned outdoor, non-electronic, non-battery fun! Lifetime has produced a quality product that was easy to assemble. I did it myself with the help of my children. Love the portability! I would have given it five stars except that the holes provided to fill it with sand are very small, and it took a LONG time to fill. I see no reason why those holes couldn't be made bigger, or the base design changed somehow to more quickly accept the sand Lifetime recommended we fill it with. Overall, I give it a thumbs up!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Fun! Bottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. Tons of fun. We've played on this for hours. Especially love the soft ball...better than the ones on the playground. Might want to update the photo on here though. It shows a white area whereas mine is yellow. September 8, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by We love this!! great exercise!! Pros:"Soft tetherball","Kids and adults all have" Bottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. Fun for all ages, we've had it set up out front where the neighborhood kids can join in, and moved it to the backyard so we can have a game before and after dinner. Its great. April 7, 2011
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great outdoor play for a good price I purchased this for my 10 year old son to have something "different" to play outside. He and his friends (and myself) have had a lot of fun and get a great workout. It definitely requires a second person, or a third hand, to assemble as you have to balance the pole in the base while laying it down to screw it together. March 21, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pretty good overall I have personally not used it, but my 11 year old son and his friends have been beating on it for a couple months now and it is holding up well. It appears a bit wobbly, but my son says it is fine and he is comparing it to a professional - cemented into the ground- version at his summer camp. It was a little tricky to put together and a couple of key pieces (plate to base connection) did not fit together quite right so that is why it is slightly unstable. Occasionally the top piece comes loose and the screw needs to be tightened. Also, I place some heavy objects on the base to make it less wobbly, but this of course makes it less portable. My son really likes it so I have to give it 4 stars. I would give it 5 stars if it was more stable, but maybe this is the best you can get out of a portable unit. Time will tell how well it holds up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by STURDY AND FANTASTIC! This is the best tether ball system I have ever seen. The kids love it, and the adults can play with it, too. It holds up to the best of players. We put water in the base, but I might try the sand, in case the water does evaporate some. It is one of our playground equipment that is always in use. Be sure to not over inflate the ball. We did and had to replace the ball. The ball is a professional ball. June 19, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fun Although we've only had our tetherball set a couple of weeks, it's had a lot of play time with middle school age children. Assembly was done by a 13 year old. Great purchase that provides something different to do right outside the back door. Glad I didn't mess around with an old tire and cement for a homemade tetherball set after seeing that Home Depot had the best price! June 24, 2012
