Sick Trx singles
Sick Trx Singles is a great way to practice doubles with only two people. We play this instead of half-court singles because it takes the handicap out of half-court singles. Sometimes people tape off part of the court or don’t allow around-the-post shots.
Here’s how it works: Each player stays on the same side of the court that their score dictates. If I’m even, I’ll be on the right side of the court; if I’m odd, I’ll be on the left side of the court. My opponent does the same and, therefore, we get all four angles in one game.
The other difference is that around-the-post shots are legal and don’t have to land in the square you’re in. Sick Trx Singles 100 percent mimics doubles—with just two people—so you can get a great workout in a short amount of time.
