Divide players into two teams. Each team selects one player as their King or Queen. King/Queen takes up position at net. All other players on their team are at the opposite baseline. One at a time, they rally straight ahead relay fashion (baseline player hits one ball, then goes to end of line so next player can hit next ball). First team to 50 rallies, wins.
- If they miss, they don't necessarily have to start over at zero - that is completely up to you.
- Switching out King/Queen - you can do this after each round of 50, or devise some method of having them switch during play. For example, if net player mis-plays a ball, they have to switch with whomever they were playing against.
- Limit to specific shots, such as players must hit only backhands, or net player must hit volleys.
This game generated a high level of enthusiasm, camaraderie and competition. I will def be trying it soon with my own students.
