About the Manufacturer

In the beginning, all the founder of Lifetime Products wanted was a sturdier basketball pole for his backyard. With this in mind, he found and purchased a piece of heavy-duty used pipe, a sheet of plywood, and a basketball rim. The result was a basketball standard for his backyard. That was 1972.

Seeing the potential that others might also desire a quality basketball system in their yards, he placed an ad in the "Big Nickel," the local free classified newspaper, and made his first sale. The rest — as they say — is history.

Not too many years after selling his first basketball system, he created the American PlayWorld company in 1973, which he based in his garage located in Riverdale, Utah. Gradually this store kept expanding into many more types of playground equipment, and was eventually moved to a bigger location in South Ogden, Utah.

Several years later, the company transformed the Basketball industry with the introduction of the Quick Adjust basketball pole — the first complete basketball system you could raise up and down with a broomstick.

In March 1986, a separate company was created to concentrate specifically on manufacturing adjustable basketball systems. This new company was named Lifetime Products, the name inspired by the goal of building a durable, lasting product.

Today, Lifetime Products Inc. has applied innovation and cutting-edge technology in plastics and metals to create a family of affordable lifestyle products that feature superior strength and durability. The world's leading manufacturer of folding tables and Chairs, Lifetime was founded as the maker of portable basketball systems that revolutionized the industry with patented technology. With new offerings such as outdoor sheds and utility trailers, Lifetime continues to develop innovative products that outfit the lifestyles of today's Americans.

In the time since those first crucial years in Lifetime's history, the company has grown from having 18 employees in a 32,000 square-foot space in half a warehouse in the Clearfield, Utah Freeport Center to over 1,400 employees and 2.6 million square feet spread over 23 separate buildings.

More for kids.

Kathy from Arizona

The set up didn't take too long for this tetherball. We used water in the base which makes it a little bit more wobbly when my daughter and her friends play with it. Maybe if we used sand it would be more stable. We would definitely recommend it, but it is more for kids since it isn't one that is put in the ground.

Great Setup!!

Emily from Salt Lake City, UT– Verified Buyer

Bought this for our 6 yr old son for Christmas-- not hard to put together- and included everything to get us started- except sand for the base (it even included a pump and needle for the ball- great!)
We have had many hours playing on it already- and the sandbags still haven't made it in the base- they are just sitting on the top. Would recommend to all tetherball lovers!

Tether ball

Riley from San Antonio, TX– Verified Buyer

This is perfect for your backyard, sturdy and well built! The quality is good and it was really easy to put together. You can easily move it around in your yard, but it would be difficult to transport.

I just LOVED tetherball growing up, and even had one in my backyard too, so I couldn't wait to get a tetherball set for my kids! They are still too young, but time flies and before I know it, the'll be tall enough haha. Thank you, Lifetime. And thank you, Wayfair.
