Game Tactics 2

Game tactics is all about using strategy. This is the second of our quizzes about tactics used when playing games. The team who uses the best tactics is usually the team that wins.

In sports with teams, the players have extra tactics than those sports where there is just one player, such as tennis. If you think when a team is given a a corner in football, it is sometimes called 'set play' because each player knows exactly what they are going to do as they've practised it in training sessions. A tennis player doesn't have the benefit of another player (unless they are playing doubles of course).

This quiz is about some of the tactics you use in striking and fielding games such as rounders and cricket, and net/wall games such as tennis, badminton and squash. See if you can remember what you have learned in PE lessons.
