I just remembered "Tram Lines" which we played at primary school on the playground.
It was marked out with lines for Football (5-a side soccer), Rounders and others, possibly tennis.
The result was a whole load of lines in different colours.
You were allowed to run along the lines, but not allowed to leave the lines. You could change to a different line if it intersected the one you were on.
As usual we had a person who was "It" and they had to chase along the same line to catch you up. They couldn't tig you from a parallel line, even if they could reach you to touch. They had to be on the same line you were on.
