Get your sweats and sneakers out because the Central Square Business Association
and local four square league Squarefour are hosting a Four Square Tournament
on Thursday June 22 at 5pm at the Cambridge Family YMCA, 820 Mass Ave, with
an afterparty at The Asgard Irish Pub and Restaurant. Yes, we really did say
four square. The first of its kind, this tournament will raise money for the
next ArtsCentral festival. All tournament proceeds will benefit both the
CSBA's ArtsCentral
and Squarefour in the excellent work they do.

On June 22, your team of coworkers, friends or colleagues may compete for the
coveted Crimson Sphere. This is a great opportunity for your team to bond and
have fun, as well as make a small contribution to the success of two great community
programs. Your team should come ready to bring the heat with team names and
uniforms or costumes that show what you’re made of, and not be shown up
by some of the flashier groups in the area! You should know that there will
be a few recognized four square world champions in the crowd and you will get
to know them soon enough...
There will be more than mere games...
Other exciting things will take place at this event. The first of many will
be a silent arts auction featuring local Cambridge works, a demonstration of
an interesting Cambridge re-naming
art work by Ikatun
, some giant rubber monsters and martial arts performances,
a live DJ providing music and an MC that will blow you away! The event will
move to the Asgard
Irish Pub and Restaurant
for free appetizers and the announcement of the
grand prizes.
This event is brought to you by...
The Central Square Business Association works to maintain and support
a lively commercial and business area and enhance the quality of life in Central
Square, Cambridge. Their first annual ArtsCentral event in September of 2005
celebrated the arts that comprise our everyday lives in Central Square as artists
and business owners opened their doors to show their fine arts, culinary magic,
style, fashion and crafts. Funding earned during this tourney will support ArtsCentral
for another successful event in June of 2007.

Squarefour is the world's first (and finest) four square league, a
non-profit sporting club offering chapters around New England! You may remember
four square from your childhood but we promise this game is not for kids. Played
on a square court with a rubber playground ball, four opponents battle it out
to rise to the highest numbered square and, of course, ultimate glory. But don't
take our word for it, read it in the Weekly
or hear it from Bill Littlefield on NPR's Only
A Game
. You can also refresh your memory by checking out the four square
official rules section.
Can't play? You can still show your support of the arts in Cambridge...

The CSBA is seeking sponsorships and donations to help make this event a total success. If you are interested in contributing please contact Robin Franz, CSBA Executive Director, at 617.864.3211 or robin@centralsquarecambridge.com.
