Sports played on Courts

Challenge #13 in the Travel and Sports series. Hosted by bikinchris.
Challenge has finished
Show us the game action you have from games played on courts. There are lots of sports played on courts (Basketball, raquetball, tennis, pole vaulting etc.), so I don't think I need to list all of them. "Courts" in this case will also mean playing surfaces designed specifically for hosting events. Example: Track and field events are held on tracks. Hold your street hockey for next week's challenge, please. But indoor hockey is fine. ADDED to fix earlier challenges: Your image must be taken during an organized game or competition, or at least in training for a competition.

This is one in a series of the petanque game played by the juvenile players of the Tamatave club in preparation for the monthly competition. the setting is the petanque "court" under the shade of the bunion trees in Tamatave, Madagascar. To the left of the thrower's left knee one can just see the one ball about to hit the 'marker'.
