You can get a basic swingball set on Amazon for £15.97 and it is made by Mookie. Once set up it is 1.6m in height so is ideal for children and adults alioke although this particular model is mainly aimed at children, it is not the sort of design for aduklts who want to smash lumps out of the ball. Included in the set are two plastic bats that are quite chunky and when you hit the ball it has a solid sort of whacking sound to it. It is suitable for children from five and up I reckon although the box says it is suitable for those who are younger, I'm not so convinced that it is suitable for younger children however certainly adults who are not overly competitive will enjoy this swingball set.

The downside to this set is the fact that it has a spike on the end so you need soft ground to set it up on, you can if you are prepared to pay a bit more get ones with a base that can be used on any surface and in hindsight I wish we had got one like that as a lot of our rear garden is patio and there is a small area of grass, this means that when this is in operation it sort of dominates the grass to the exclusion of all others.

In terms of developing and improving hand eye coordination swingball is excellent and with the ball tethered it will not go flying off to cause any damage. There are three poles in all so you can adjust the height of it for smaller players. Playing is great fun and you do get a bit of exercise as well although it is hardly enough to draw a sweat unless you have really long rallies.

Personally I would recommend paying a bit more to get a solid base for any surface but I have no complaints with the quality of the product that was supplied. Just need some sun now so that we can use it this year.
