Tetherball At the Fence Courtesy of Hearthsong

Hey Neighbors!

As you know we have really been working out back quite a bit.  So, I was really happy when Hearthsong decided to work with us with their Deluxe Heavy-Duty Backyard Tetherball Set.  Today I am going to post about putting it up and then tomorrow or Monday I will post showing you how much fun you can have with tetherball!

This set comes with everything you need, except for someone to dig the hole and the bag of cement you should use to put the pole in the ground.  So, We ran out and picked up a bag of cement mix and then asked one of my sons to dig us a hole.  He did a great job!  After digging your hole about 8-10 inches around and just deep enough for the plastic sleeve, you are almost ready to mix your cement.  Right before you do your cement you need to tape the end of the provided plastic sleeve.  (One end only!)

Now, you are ready to mix your cement.  We started out mixing in a bucket, but we had a hard time getting the bottom mix wet, so we moved it to a larger plastic bin.  It worked!  After it was mixed well, we added a little bit to the bottom of the hole and then I held the plastic sleeve in place, taped side down, while my son filled in the rest of the hole.  Be sure you do not allow any cement down the tube.  We placed a brick on top of the sleeve to hold it in place.  Now we wait!

While we wait though we can get everything else ready.  We used the little pump, which comes with this set, to blow up the tetherball.  We also went ahead and attached the other parts of the poles together and attached the ball at the top.  Now we just need the cement to dry.  Then we will be able to slip the pole in the sleeve and play ball!
