So, you've gathered your supplies. Now your ready to begin! Start by folding your rope in half, tying bolth ends together, making sure that it will stayed tied. Then, tie the folded end of your rope also making sure it will not come undone. The knot in the picture is not required, you can make any knot you wish as long as it is secure. (Sorry the picture only shows one knot. There should be another one at the other end of your rope that goes into the hole in the tennis ball.)
