I would suggest spot metering and ignore the blown backgrounds if that was possible
Else this is time for M mode by taking a few sample shots before the action starts. This will give you opportunity to get the best compromise
So trial and error type thing? Maybe try something more white than gray let's say? Then snap a few shots and check the meter and histogram? Thanks.
Thats about all you can do, cameras do not have enough DR at higher ISO's to properly expose both bright and dark areas. Even at ISO 100, DR is not able to handle it perfectly, and you are likely to be cranking up the ISO.
