Four Squre

  • Object of the Game:  To become the server.

    How to play:

    • To begin, four people enter the court (one person per square).  The person in square D is the server.
    • To serve, the ball is dropped down and as the ball bounces back up, the server hits it into one of the other three square. 
    • The server must stand in the serving area until they have finished serving. 
    • In the event of a bad serve, the person receiving the serve may choose instead to catch the ball and request a new serve.
    •  The ball may bounce only once in any square before the player hits it into another square.

    ·         When a foul occurs, the person who is responsible leaves her/his square and goes to the end of the challenge line.  The other players move up one square (counterclockwise), leaving square A open for a new player.

    Fouls:

    • Allowing the ball to bounce more or less than once on the blacktop before returning it
    •  Hitting the ball out of bounds or on a line
    • Failing to return a ball coming into your square
    • Catching/throwing the ball and/or hitting the ball more than once.
