Rated 4 out of 5 by Jaizelle Good but not great
Well Made but a pain to install in ground. Needs to be cemented

Rated 1 out of 5 by Daisy Not worth the 70 dollars!
I wish I had read reviews before purchasing this. This set was easy enough to put together, but NOT easy to get into the ground (and we do NOT have rocky soil) the pole just is so big, and not narrow enough to easily install. Even though 2 men worked to get it into the ground, and got it all the way in (after an hour) it wobbles around in the ground! This set definitely needs to be cemented. In addition, the clip has already broken. It's too bad. My kids were so excited. But the clip continually breaking, and the ball falling off, in addition to it being unstable, makes it less than enjoyable to play with. I wish I had saved the box so I could return it. Oh, it's been 3 weeks since we bought it, and the base is already rusting. Save your money. Don't buy this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Karscomil Great set
I was concern that the set would not stand strong as I, my husband, and five grandchildren played over and over, day after day. It's really standing stronger than I had expected.. Great set for the $$.

We bought this for my 9yr olds Birthday - it was easy to assemble and she has enjoyed it. It has a stake on the bottom so you don't have to cement it in to the ground, but that does make the poll a little wobbly.

Spike went into the ground very well. The two poles that snap together do not have a tight fit therefore making the pole very unstable. The poles wobble all over the place making it difficult to hit the ball.

My kids love this! I was so happy to finally find one. Unfortunately, the clip broke after one week of use. Now we just tie it on. I was so dissappointed. It also wobbles because the main pole is in three parts. It doesn't connect tight. My girls are still using it though.

I bought for the price a decent teatherball set.
1. It was cheap
2. easy install
3. Didn't expect much from it
For what it is its good, but honestly if my wife didn't buy it outright I would have purchased better quality materials and made a better set. these are simple to make and she definatley overpayed as I've repaired it 3 times (not the same fixes). Where the poles join they easily bend outwards the more the game is played. I would consider welding them if you have the means. The metal clips are trash, just tie the rope through it. The ball is cheap and hard. if you can buy a nice leather one and your hands will thank you. taking them down and placing them inside is a must as weather takes its toll on these balls.

The tetherball pole was easy to assemble but after about 30 minutes of use the pole split right up the middle where you could see the seam where it was molded together. I would imagine they would all do this at some point of use.

Not sure about all the bad reviews. Ours has lasted a year now and only met its demise when a construction truck from the house building next door ran over it. The design allows for disassembly so I'm not sure how it could be more sturdy. Also not sure about the eye bolt - mine went together just fine. Product in my opinion is exactly what I expected when I purchased it. The only negative I would give is that the ball is very firm and would probably be uncomfortable after a bit. We tend to play for around 10 minutes so not an issue for us.
