Tetherball is a North American game for two opposing players. The equipment consists of a stationary metal pole, from which is hung a volleyball from a rope or tether. The two players stand on opposite sides of the pole. Each player tries to hit the ball one way; one clockwise, and one counterclockwise. The game ends when one player manages to wind the ball all the way around the pole so that it is stopped by the rope. It must not bounce.
The board of directors of the Sri Lanka Tetherball association are the following:
Charter President – Anjana Sirikumara
Executive President – Dhinoda Hansina Perera

Tetherball was introduced to Sri Lanka for the first time by Anjana Sirikumara’s grand uncle on 16th April 2015.
