Once children have progressed through a range of agility, and movement games, ball bouncing and catching activities, and hitting drills, they will be have the confidence, and be competent to join in racket and ball games on a court.

The level at which the children compete will depend on their age, and the type of ball and equipment they can manage successfully.
