Create two teams per court. Each player is given three balls. One point awarded for every target hit. Points are combined to come up with a team total.
Here are some progression ideas.
Easiest: entire service box is your target - just get the ball over the net and into the correct service box.
Harder: allow only one serve per player. Or, have them 'call' their target before they serve.
A note about using cones as targets: I use the cones as a visual but the actual target is more of a zone. For example a cone at the 'T' is actually part of a zone consisting of the rectangle or square along the dividing line of the service box. Unless my players are very high level and the cones are very large I don't expect them to hit the cone, but I do expect them to aim for/hit the zone (down the middle, in the body, or out wide). If anyone actually does hit a cone, instant winner! Game or round is over.
