Hola Emanuel

When we say something like this:

¡No juegues a la pelota en el patio!

Don't play with the ball in the patio!

we are not referring to a specific game; we are referring to simply playing "with" the ball (just using a ball).

We could have also said:

No juegues con la pelota en el patio.

Saludos
