Kind of King of the Court

  • 2 on 2
  • Trainer starts rally on points half. If the points half players do not win rally they receive a second ball, otherwise just keep counting.
  • Play rally full time, attack and defense.
  • Other players make sure the balls get into the ball pit quickly.
  • Depending on the number of players, or fixed 2 numbers, or just connect behind and alternating 2 numbers.

  • Practice setup underhand because of emergency balls or ill fitting balls.
  • The trainer throws the balls to player 2 who plays the ball underhand to the right front.
  • Player 1 walks to this position and gives an underhand setup on the outside where player 2 attacks.
  • After this action player 1 goes to position of player 2 and player 3 comes to position of player 1. etc.
  • The attackers get the balls themselves and put them back in the ballcar.
  • When the pass is going well you can increase the pace so that the exercise continues and people do not have to wait too long.

  • Divide the group into 6 and a server.
  • The server gets 3 turns to serve.
  • Must try to make a serving point. If successful the server receives one point per serve.
  • If the server plays a faulty serve the six field players receive one point. If the 6 field players manage to process the service they must play a rally consisting of a pass, a set-up and a smash/push ball.
  • If they succeed, they also receive a point.
  • After 3 service turns the server changes.
  • Who has the most points?
  • First each player gets a ball. Make a smash move, gradually building up to loosen the shoulder muscles.
  • Smash on the floor and catch.
  • Then smash against the wall, catch it yourself.
  • Divide the group in two halves.
  • A group starts with serving. Each player gets 2 balls.
    • The other half first collects the balls, then each player gets 2 balls again, before serving back.
  • Variation:
    • Serve from behind the playing field position 1.
    • Straight ahead.
    • Other side collects balls, walks to own 1. position and serves straight ahead.
    • Idem, only serve diagonally.
