Sounds like you have a problem under your knee cap(patella).
Most stress in this area during squats and going down stairs (chondromalacia pattelli) . The corner stone of pt for it is quad exercises : straight leg raising, "quad sets" (tensing muscle while knee straight/isometrically)and pain free arc exercises.

In brief: While playing what?

Sounds like patellar problem usually quad strengthening helps but avoid squats as they put too much pressure on that part of the joint.
