Dingles is a game that accommodates four players per court, incorporating elements of both singles and doubles play. Players begin on the baseline, each initiating a “singles” point by simultaneously feeding a ball to the opposing crosscourt. This action commences two concurrent rallies. The rallies continue until one player misses, at which point they are required to call out “Dingles!” After this, the remaining ball in play transitions into a doubles point that involves all four players. The play continues until the point concludes.
In order to score, a team must triumph in both elements – that is, they must secure victories in both the singles and doubles points.
