Sharks and Minnows
It's your basic game of tag, with a twist. One person is designated 'it' or in this case, a Shark. All others are Minnows. The Shark must chase the Minnows and tag them by touching them. Once others are tagged, they also become Sharks and assist tagging the remaining Minnows. The twist: Sharks must hold hands as they pursue Minnows so that the Minnows know who is a Shark and who is not (it's a little more obvious in the deep blue sea).
Further adapting this game to the tennis court, I require they remain inside the playable area on one half of the court. Last Minnow tagged wins, and is the first Shark in the next round. Thanks to my Orange Ball class for the great suggestion!
