With the inauguration of the several tetherball playgrounds in many schools & in the public park, enthusiasts are eager to learn & compete for the sports in many levels.

If you’re interested to spend relatively an inexpensive flexible budget & some hours of insane working capability, something great would manifest just from things that are meant to be thrown away as garbage. So gather up all the odds & bits, and build your very own tetherball in your background.
For building up the tetherball set, here are some of the things that you need to gather before initiating your construction which are as follows:
A 10ft tall pole.
Metal bars for the base.
A car tire for supporting the base.
Here are the basic steps for establishing the tetherball in your background which are as follows:
Use two 10inch steel rods which should be welded together to form a ‘X’ shape to form the firm base for supporting the pole.
Now weld the 10ft tall pole vertically above the centre of the cross so as to form the centre for hanging the tetherball. All the welding should be done perfectly so that it can withstand all possible natural weathering as well as hitting.
For safety & prevention of corrosion, insert an eye bolt at the top of the pole.
Now, set an old car tire on a thick trash bag, upon which place the welded pole at an estimated centre of the tire.
Mix some cement & pour & fill the entire hollow space between the edge of the tire & the pole. This would add further strength to the base, preventing it from falling down, even when the pole receives the strongest of blows on the ball.
Once the concrete has settled, which would take almost 24 hours, check for the stability of the pole.
Now, take a 6ft inelastic cord & attach its one end to ball & the other end to the eye boltFree Web Content, which has been previously bolted in the pole.
Use the ground markers to draw the court around the pole & indulge yourself to master the tetherball game.
