  • Ent: This is the total number of times that team players started in one square. This is used as a base for counting the number of rounds that a team has played.
  • Srv: This is the total number of times a team player has been in four square and served the ball.
  • Avg: The ratio of the Srv to Ent, how many times in four square divided by the number of times in one square, this final average gives us the team score regardless of how many games were played or how many people were on each team.

HMFH won best uniform with their silk-screened 4Squares design. The whole team participated in the design process. Proteus Design was a close second in this category, as they also designed some very intimidating "no blood on serves" t-shirts. The best uniform award for an individual went to the Caped 1369 Avenger, in all her glory.

Velir was voted "Most Likely to Terrorize the Playground", almost entirely due to the menacing presence of Daniel Delay. The "Best Spirit" award was unanimously decided to be SEA Consultants, led by 4Square aficionado Terri Traverso "Best Serves" goes to the DPW team, DP Dub All Stars, for their powerhouse approach. "Most Likely to Make Up Rules" goes to the CASPAR Friendly ghosts for their 4Square creativity.

The Institute for Health and Recovery "Hope Fiends" received kudos for their creative name, and The Institute for Infinitely Small Things won the award for Best Dive, which, unfortunately, ended in a bit of a blister. The Forest City "X" men earned the "Most Intimidating" title, and CW TaeKwondo of Boston took home the award for "Most Likely to Use the Force to Their Advantage". And the ever-popular CCTV won the "Most Likely to Get Picked First When Picking Sides" award. The "Leaders" crew from Leader Bank brought their staff and fans to the event and won the "Best Cheering Section" honors.

The "Little Squares" award for the 4Square stars of tomorrow goes to "The Blue Jays" with the children of Cambridge School Board member Patty Nolan leading the way. The "It"s Called Boxball" team took home the award for "Silliest Team Name". Draper Labs won the "Rise to the Challenge" award for the gentlemen that played so well despite his fancy (and very slippery) shoes.

And finally the "Spirit of Four Square" was best embodied by the ladies of Rodney"s Book Store.
