Tennis question?

I've been organizing a tennis tournament, but while planning some "modalities" for the youngest, I faced myself with a horrible lack of vocabulary to talk about this "modality", whose name I am not able to figure out. It consists in something we all do with a tennis racket and a ball, which is "hitting it" several times without letting the ball fell, in a way to see how may "taps" you do. I have looked all over google, but was unable to find the word that describes such thing, but yet very simple.

I'm from Portugal, and when trying to translate it I am unable to find it. In portuguese would be "dar toques na bola".

Sorry for the stupid question, but some help would be appreciated.
