Hi, I've been looking for a totem tennis (swing ball) set for my kids and the only ones I have come across to date seem pretty flimsy. I'm after something that isn't going to break in the first five minutes, and can also withstand a few hits from a 6 foot plus dad (who is bound to want to get involved!).  

I'm willing to shop online, or instore, wherever I can find something with a bit of quality.  Have googled a little but not really having much luck.

thanks in advance.

We also purchased ours from Kmart or a similar department store - I think a Dunlop brand? Ours has lasted for ages and that is with every adult around when we took it camping using it as well.

We have a dunlop brand which is 3 yrs old and still going strong. DH gets out there and really whacks it so it's good one to last him whacking it.
