Got this for my 7 and 13 year old for Christmas - the whole family has been having fun with this. The net can be lowered for tennis by removing one portion of the poles. Once filled with water, the base is sturdy, and the net seems durable enough for backyard play. Love the inflatable balls - they are bouncy even on the grass. The only downside is that a roving raccoon or skunk bit into both inflatables and popped them in the night! Would buy again! (Any chance to buy just the ball replacements?)

This was a replacement for another set lost to flood damage. I was glad to finally find this set since it was not available at the store where the original one was purchased. This volleyball isn't as durable as the other one. After just a couple of hours of play the ball doesn't hold air and the seams are splitting. The grandkids have had a great time playing with this set but the volleyball is poor quality & probably won't last through the summer. Bummer!

These are very well made and even the adults had a blast!

Just bought this for my daughter's 6th birthday. It was a huge hit and enjoyed by all ages. Even the adults had fun playing with it. The oversized equipment is not just fun and funny, it's great for teaching young kids the concepts of these few sports and have them actually hit the ball. The only downsize it is made extremely cheaply. If you are willing to add something external to hold it down, like water jugs or sand bags then it's great. Filling the bases with water doesn't work enough and 2 plastic caps broke off while doing it. Also the metal clasps to hold the net onto the polls are too open and pop off a lot. We replaced with clips from home depot that close and now its great! So if you are willing to do a little fixing up with it then it should last and be a lot of summer fun. If not, skip it.

I purchased two sets to give to my grandchildren in CA and Michigan for Christmas. Last week the set was put up in California and I must say I was disappointed in the quality. The blow-up volleyball would not hold the air and the clips that attached the net to the poles were very flimsy and would not stay put. The birdie and racquets seem to work fine and the children love playing the games. I will call to see if the ball can be replaced and perhaps purchase different clips to hold the netting in place.
