Two players play singles. The goal is to complete 8 rallies from the service lines. Once this is achieved, they move back to a spot midway between service line and baseline and complete 6 rallies. When this is accomplished, they may move back to the baseline and complete 4 rallies. First team to complete all three is the winner.
- For young beginners, have them tossing the ball rather than hitting.
- To make it harder, restrict the type of shots they may hit, or reduce the size of the playing area (cut court in half lengthwise).
- For larger groups, play as a doubles activity. Have extra players rotate in after every attempt.
