I bought the Surf theme set for my boyfriend for Christmas, and it's been a fun little toy to have. I recommend playing over a high net, such as a volleyball net or badminton, as opposed to a tennis net. Or if you're in a close enough space just hitting the ball back and forth can call for a lot of running around and fun.
The only reason I'm giving this item four instead of five stars is because the ball is very hollow and doesn't feel very durable. I'm worried that it will eventually pop open and will need to be replaced. However, the paddles are pretty solid and have a strong grip. I think they will last a long time, as will the woven bag that the set comes in for easy storage and toting around.
