Players pair up facing each other a safe distance apart, racquets in hand. Rather than the gestures for rock, paper and scissors, they will be shadow-swinging a forehand, a backhand, or a volley.
Backhand - beats forehand
Forehand - beats volley
Volley - beats backhand
Players begin in the Ready position. On the count of 3, player makes their shadow swing. Play a little Uptown-Downtown here, with winners moving 'up' the line and losers moving 'down'. In lieu of the beautiful logic that helps us remember who wins the original game, try this: it goes in alphabetical order. Backhand (B) beats Forehand (F) and Forehand (F) beats Volley (V), leaving Volley (V) to cycle through the end of the alphabet and come back to beat Backhand (B).
