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 Never outgrow it! We bought this a few years back for the grand-kids. However, it is used by their parents as much. It provides the opportunity for fun normally found at school only. This set, like all of the products from Lifetime hold up so well. We put the ball away because the smaller ponies like to knock it around when they are in the play area. Fun for everyone and everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun, Fun, Fun! I bought this for my teen-age son. I have had such a great time watching him and his friends play (very aggressively I might add). These guys are all about 6 feet tall, but the game held up extremely well and provided hours of fun. We've also had substantially smaller kids play and they had a great time as well. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sturdy We got these and gave them to each set of cousins last year. They have held up well in the winds of Nebraska and the cold as well as heat. I did add a swivel clip to the top to make it easier to take the ball off if I wanted to. The kids have an absolute blast playing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Weatherproof My daughter got this as a Christmas present a few years ago and just loves it. It has stayed outside and endured much rain, wind, and snow. There has been no signs of aging or rust, which Is wonderful. It's such a great quality of material. Our family loves a good competition and this tetherball has allowed us to make many happy and laughable memories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable and Fun! I bought this a month ago and the whole family loves to play with it. The most difficult part of the assembly was trying to stuff 150 pounds of sound into a small hole. If not for that design issue, I'd say it's the perfect outdoor gift for kids and adults.
