Lifetime brings another childhood game home with the Lifetime Tetherball System. Gone are the days of playing Tetherball exclusively in the schoolyard. Now the whole family can enjoy professional playground equipment in the safety and convenience of your own yard. Our portable tetherball system provides your family with a lot of fun in a small amount of space. This system is designed with a convenient portable base, just like our portable basketball systems. Just fill the base with sand or water and you're ready to play.

Lifetime's Tetherball System is engineered with heavy-duty construction for high-performance play and a soft-surface ball for safety. The LifetimeTetherball System features a rust-resistant steel pole with a portable base constructed of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) that won't crack, chip, or peel. Built to last, this tetherball system will entertain the whole family for years to come. Made in the USA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fun year after year! I bought my tetherball 2 years ago for a family party and we've used it every summer! Both the adults and kids in our family love it. It's easy to store in the winter and simple to get ready in the summer. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Fun We've had this for several years and it still provides a lot of fun for our family and the neighborhood. The set is solidly built, my only "complaint" would be the metal base (inside the plastic) leaves rust stains on the concrete. I did have one ball that would not hold air, after about 5 minutes in the store I walked away with a replacement at no charge. They definitely stand by their product name!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality for price My kids love this. We set it up during the summer not far from the basketball hoop. They go back and forth between the two and come up with fun games. Ah the imagination of kids! I do wish the base were just a bit larger. When the adults hop in and play we can get a little crazy and I think a heavier base would help. Other than that this is the perfect pairing for a swing set, dome climber, or basketball hoop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from strong and portable I bought this several years ago for my three active granddaughters and they love it! It is still in great shape! It can be moved easily to the patio or grass. Grandma and Grandpa even play occasionally.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun Time We bought this almost 5 years ago, has provided tons of play. We replaced the ball a total of 4 times, the hot Texas sun is rough on balls. Went to replace the ball again and the part that holds the ball to the pole broke. Called Lifetime and they replaced it free of charge. Great customer service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

This doesn’t seem to be portable if it’s weighted down with 70 lbs of sand or water. Are there wheels attached that will allow young kids to move it from one place to another, or do they have to drain the contents before they can move it?

Asked by: wideout
This base doesn't have wheels attached. If you wish to move it, it's best to have an adult transport the system, even if the contents are drained or removed.
