Party Pros: Create your own Web Site
On a large, flat area, mark four adjoining squares, six to eight feet on a side (total playing area is a square, 14 to 16 feet on a side).
In the far corner of one square (the server's square) make a smaller square, about two feet on a side.
The squares are numbered 1, 2, 3, and 4, with the server's square being number one.
The server starts, and players hit the ball back and forth between their squares. The ball must bounce in another player's square, and they must hit it to another player before it bounces a second time.
A player may hit the ball before it bounces, if they choose to do so.
If a player hits the ball so that it misses another player's square, of fails to hit the ball before the second bounce after it has landed in their square, they are "out".
When a player is out, the other players move up to take their place, and that player moves to the last square, or to the end of the line, if there are more than four players.
The object of the game is to move up to and hold the server's position.
