Fun tennis games: Dingles

June 01, 2021

Dingles is a fun game to play with four players per court where you combine singles and doubles play.

Players will start on the baseline where they will start with a simultaneous "singles" point by feeding a ball to the opposite crosscourt. Two balls are now in play. 


Keep the rally going until one player misses at which point they yell out "Dingles!" Then, the remaining ball that is still in play turns into a doubles point with all four players participating until the point is over. Once a team gets to five points, rotate teams and keep it going!


To add to the challenge, a team only earns a point if they "win both balls" by winning the singles AND doubles points.
