CLEARFIELD, UTAH, May 6, 2009 – It’s two o’clock in the afternoon, the sun beats down, and directly across from you, holding the ball, is the undefeated tetherball champion of your school or camp. A crowd gathers. You serve; he returns. Then, you hit the ball at an angle he can’t possibly defend. Victory and childhood fame are yours. The bell sounds, recess is over or the summer ends, and the game is forgotten—until now.
Designed with homeowners in mind, the Tetherball System from Lifetime Products is the first portable system packaged in just one box, and doesn’t require a cement slab for setup, so it won’t create a permanent footprint in the yard. Instead, the base sits above ground and can be weighted for safety and durability with sand or water. The Lifetime Tetherball System is quick to set up and easily rolls to any space on the lawn or driveway for convenient play during family barbeques, tournaments with friends and neighbors, or lazy afternoons.
With an eight-inch, soft-touch regulation ball and 100-inch tall pole, the Tetherball System from Lifetime Products is safe for children ages six and up, and can handle the aggressive play of even a former schoolyard champion. Additionally, the tetherball system is designed to stand up to year-round weather conditions: the high-density polyethylene base resists cracking, peeling and chipping, and the rust-resistant pole stands up to precipitation and sprinkler systems.
Lifetime’s Tetherball Systems are made in the USA and come with a five-year limited warranty. They have a suggested retail price of $129.99 and are available online at Lifetime.com.
