This is a fun game to play with your friends in the playground, and it will help you keep fit too!

Getting ready

You will need 4 or more players, a bouncy ball and some chalk.

Use the chalk to draw a large square roughly 6m by 6m.

Divide the square into four parts.

Number the squares 1 to 3 and write 'King' in the remaining square.

Everyone starts with 5 points and they lose a point every time they make a mistake.

How to play King's corner

1 Each player stands in a different square.

The 'King' goes first and serves the ball by bouncing it in their square once and then hitting it towards one of the other squares.

2 The player who receives the ball must let it bounce once in their square before hitting it towards any of the other squares.

3 Once a player loses all 5 points they are out.

The other players move one number up and keep playing until only one player is left.

The winner then becomes the new King.

You lose a point if:

1 You touch the ball before it has bounced in your square.

2 You let the ball bounce more than once in your square.

3 The player hitting the ball throws it out of the chalk lines.
