Tetherball: Remember Playing This Fun Game As a Kid at Recess? by Mike Prochaska
Did you know that tetherball is starting to be banned on some playgrounds and at recess? I still remember grade school, and at recess there was a tetherball court on the playground. Five tetherball poles with enough space for everyone to play.
Tetherball is a game for two opposing players. While not officially recognized as a sport, it is generally an outdoor activity. The equipment consists of a metal pole and a volleyball hung from an attached rope. The two players stand on each side of the pole. Each player tries to hit the ball one way around the pole.
Every day at recess I would play tetherball. I remember swinging the ball as hard as I could around the pole and watching it fly while my friend tried to swing it around the pole the other way. Jumping in the air, trying to stop the ball and hitting it the other way. Sometimes the ball would hit you or the rope would wrap around your hand but that was part of the fun of the game!
