Peg-Leg Doubles requires directional skill, so advanced beginners and up. Players set up in traditional formation. Play is restricted to cross-court only. So if the first server serves from deuce side, all balls must land in the respective deuce courts. Net players may poach after the serve but their volleys must land in the correct court. Alleys are allowed since this is a doubles activity.

For more advanced players, have them play out a set in this fashion. For younger or less advanced players, you may find a couple of throw down spots will come in handy to remind players which parts of the courts are 'legal'.
