Do I need to stand in my square during a serve?

Dear Sean
Is there a rule about where you need to stand in your square during a serve? While you are in square 2 is it legal to be at the apex of squares 4,3, and 1? Is there anything saying you cannot? I know there is anti-poaching and interference rules, but is there anything saying the person occupying square 2 cannot crowd squares 4,3, and 1 and cause a misdirection of the serve once it is hit in the general direction? - "Bannerism", 7/21/2008

Thanks for the message, "Bannerism". You are actually asking two different questions, let me try to pull them apart.

Dear Sean,
During play, can a player occupying a specific square leave the square for any reason? I am under the impression that a player must always stay within their square. Please advise. Thanks - John, 6/1/2008

Hi John. I've answered this before but I'll give it another go.

The official ruling is that we let players run all over the court. But that doesn't mean this "ruling" is right for your players.

Hi Britt, thanks for the message. It would be real cool if you guys down in Texas took an interest in four square.

Dear Sean,
I'm the teen director at the boys and girls club here at Cape Cod Mass where foursquare has recently become a club favorite game to play, and I?ve got a few questions for you. First off, how do you hand out trophies for a TEAM in a game with four people and the people are continuously changing? And secondly the staff here has become ADDICTED to the game, how do we get invites to the next ?World Championship?? - Russ 5/9/08

Thanks for the note, Russ, glad to see you have such a strong scene. I have a few answers to your few questions.
