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 Takes me back to childhood I purchased 2 of these, and the kids (and grownups) have enjoyed using them. They were easy to assemble, but I'm not tall and have short arms so it was helpful to have another person to help me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We all love it! We leave the ball out year round and no signs of weather damage. We put sand in the bottom so it wouldn't freeze in the winter. Great addition to our backyard playground!

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.
