A tennis court is a versatile playing area that the entire family can use! There are a variety of games that can be played on a tennis court that don’t require extensive equipment or complicated set up that both children and adults can enjoy!

At Sport Court of Pittsburgh, we’ve put together a list of some of the most popular games you can play on your tennis court:


This is a classic game many of us have played in gym class, but it can also be converted into a game for the tennis court. All you need to do is gather a group of friends and several balls. Everyone is split into two teams, with one team on each side of the court.

The goal is to hit the players on the opposite team with a tennis ball to get them out. If the ball you throw is caught by a player on the opposing team, then you are out, and they get to bring back one of their out teammates into the game. The game continues until one team is eliminated.

Line Tag

This game is similar to the classic game of tag, and all you need is a group of people to get started! To begin, you choose one person to be “it.” This person will run around and try to tag the other players. All players, including the one who is it, must only run along the lines of the tennis court.
If you get tagged, then you are now “it.”

Tennis Baseball

This game requires a tennis ball, a racquet, and a group of teammates. This game is similar to regular baseball, minus the diamond. Players are split up into two teams. Determine what order your teammates are batting in. You will also need to determine what positions they will play in the field.
Choose areas of the tennis court as bases such as the net posts or fences. You will carry out this game just like a regular game of baseball, expect the pitch should bounce once before the batter hits it.

First to 100

This game also requires a group of people, a ball, and a racquet. To begin playing, everyone should spread out, and one person will hit the ball into the air while the hitter calls out a point of value for the ball.
The person who catches the ball earns those points. If you drop the ball, you lose that amount of point. The first person to earn 100 points is the winner!
