I want to give this a 5-star, but it arrived and the ball and string were not attached to the pole and there were no instructions. I've been playing this game for years and the string must be attached, you can't just tie a knot. I left a vm for the company 4 days ago and am waiting to hear back. I do hope they contact me so we an play it and then I'm confident I will change it to 5-stars, but if I don't get a response, I will be returning it. Thanks.

Not very sturdy. We have somewhat rocky soil and it was almost impossible to get the stake into the ground. I had to pound it into the ground and then the top of the piece that has the stake on it got warped and I had to squeeze it with channel locks several times to get the next piece to fit onto it. Finally got it in the ground and the kids are playing with it. I used to have one similar to this when I was a kid but that one was a lot more sturdier than this one is.

There used to be a similar game called zim zam back when I was a kid. This was the closest thing to it. You have to hit this thing level to avoid tangling of the string, the old design was much better. The base needs very soft ground or you will bend the the base when you try and stake it in the ground. I really gave a 2 star due to the price, this is a $20 game at best....

Bought this to play with my grandkids and get some exersize. Really fun even when playing alone. Grandkids don't like to play me though cause I always win.

Lasted a very long time. What gave in was the string that is connected to the ball. Quality! It's been outside for a long time and very little rust appeared after being out in the weather all the time.

Ball broken first week.
They don't make these like they used to. My 8-year-old son was able to get the tennis ball to come loose the very first week. I used to love this game as a teenager and the ball always did break but it took a lot longer than a week for it to happen. I would avoid this one unfortunately but I will be contacting the manufacturer and I will update this post once they respond. Ok update...I contacted them and they sent a replacement. It is still junk.

UNLIKE THE ORIGINAL ZIM-ZAM MY CHILDREN PLAYED WITH YEARS AGO, THE STRING WOULD NOT MOVE SMOOTHLY AROUND THE SPIRAL. IT WOULD CONSTANTLY GET CAUGHT AND WAS VERY ANNOYING. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THAT ANYONE BUY THIS TETHER TENNIS SET.

it works for us
My experience with this product is very different from other reviews. I didn't read the reviews before I bought this and was a little nervous when I went back and read them and found them less than stellar. We have been playing with this quite a bit. and it works well for us. I use it as an exercise for both my arms and my daughter and I play with it as well. I am much harder on it when i exercise with it then when my daughter and I play. (she's 9) It is light weight so i am careful when I put it in the ground and when I store it. Until you get the hang of the game (using the cork screw top) it does tend to get wrapped around the pole but that doesn't bother us. I had this game as a kid and its still as fun as it was then.
