The kind folks over at 3D Tulsa put together a very fine video based on our official four square rules. They used great graphics and cool visuals to really illustrate the game in a way that plain text does not. Enjoy, it's only about two minutes!
A lot of people from a lot of different industries are looking to us to answer questions about the standards of this playground game. Somehow we have become the official source for rules clarifications, managing behavior, and even consulting about world records. This week we're addressing a couple of questions about the size of a four square court. I will answer your questions in the order they were received...
If the ball enters a square on the fly, and the player hits the ball in their own square before it goes to another square, is the player who hit the ball out? -Jody 10/25/2013
If a ball bounces in a player A's square and player A doesn't hit the ball, then bounces in player B's square, is player A out for not hitting the ball? -Kimberly 9/24/2013
I thought "air hits" (playing the ball before it bounces in your square) was illegal? -Arthur 8/27/2013
