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).
