Two players or teams of two use a strung racquet to hit a hollow ball back and forth over a net. Service alternates between both sides of the court, with each player taking turns serving and receiving the ball. The players then volley the ball to each other until the ball goes out of bounds, if a player misses hitting the ball, or if the ball bounces multiple times on one side of the court. The ball is only allowed to bounce once before it must be hit back over the net. A player also may not hit the ball twice to get it over the net.
