Abstract:Games-based instructional approaches such as teaching games for understanding and the tactical games approach emphasize the practice of the tactical dimensions of game play that are so important for becoming a more effective player. By using game play as the primary form of practice, teachers can help students to develop a better understanding of game play. “Play practice,” another games-based instructional approach, is also based in part on the idea of pick-up games that children and adults create in the absence of enough players, space, or equipment. This article introduces various examples of play practice that physical education teachers can use when teaching racquet games. The various play practices presented in the article employ Launder's (2001) strategies for shaping, focusing, and enhancing play. The download option below is for the full issue of this publication.
