To make a tetherball set, dig a hole, pour cement, mount the pole, fill with the remaining cement, and attach the tetherball. You need a 12-foot-long metal pole, a tetherball, a post hole digger, cement mix and a level.Continue Reading
Dig a 2-feet deep hole. Use the post hole digger for this step. Try to keep the hole from becoming too wide as you dig. Ensure that there is a safe distance between your tether pole and any buildings, obstacles or walls.
Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the cement mix packaging. Once mixed properly, fill the hole about halfway.
Place the pole into the cement before it dries. Use a level to make sure that the pole is as straight as possible. Once the pole is in place, pour the remaining cement until it is level with the ground.
Set up a wooden brace system to keep the pole perfectly straight while the cement sets.
Using a mounting clip, attach the tetherball rope to the top of the pole. Attach the clip, and then attach the rope. Be sure the rope is at desired height, not too close to the ground or too close to hit anything in surrounding areas.
Makes sure the ground is level in the playing area.
