1. Volley ball: Ball is served, blocked by the center of the opposition and tossed to the lifter, then to smasher, who hits it over the net and ball land on ground. the bounces damp away on the court. Point lost by serving team.

2. Basket ball: starts with dribbling, then pass in the box, some more passing and dribbling, then a 3 pointer (maybe a 2 pointer), balls hits the board and goes down the ring.

3. Cricket: Bowled by the bowler and batsman hit it in the air, then ball lands on the ground and goes to the boundary.

4. Bowling: The player charges to the alley, swings his hand back and releases the ball. The ball hits the alley, knocks down the pins and comes back to player on the conveyor mechanism.

Cheers,

Rohit.
