My kids received this as a Christmas gift in 2011. They use it all the time (weather permitting). We did take a 5 gallon bucket, fill it with cement, and insert the ground pole. We then dug a hole in the ground and buried the bucket. This kept the whole system a lot more sturdy!

The description in the catalog never mentions that the pole must be set in concrete. Didn't find out until the product arrived.

Imagine my surprise on Christmas morning when opening this tetherball set to put in our yard that we needed 50 pounds of concrete!! No where in this product description does it say that you need to dig a very large hole and fill with 50 pounds of concrete. In fact, in the description it says easy to set up and just plant into the ground. No store was open on Christmas day so our scheduled Christmas Day game did not happen, which did lead to some very sad children, as this was a gift we planned on using that day.

Occasionally with a hard hit the ball/rope become detached from the pole and go flying. Glad I purchased for my yard for when the grandkids come to visit. It was well used this week by 3rd and 4th grade boys.
