Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Can a thirteen year old girl play sports? If yes, then what are the things she should keep in mind while practising or playing?


A: The type of sports that are played nowadays is really shameless and un-bashful. A girl after the age of nine should remain within the home. Let her recreation be within the home.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
