Throw Ball

Players are on either side of the net on a 36-foot court. Players throw a foam ball underhanded over the net. The opposite player must catch it and throw it back after the ball bounces one time on the court. To make this game easier, player can use a larger ball (such as a playground ball) and they are allowed multiple bounces before catching. Also, they can move closer to the net, marked by a poly spot or donut, before throwing the ball back over the net. Play can be a continuous rally, or let the players play points to see if they can toss the ball in the court and away from the opponent. (This simulates real match conditions and strategy.)
