Played like volleyball but on 4 connected courts. Object is similar to 4-Square in that the team with the least amount of points wins.
This activity combines the ever popular 4-square with a game that others enjoy, volleyball. I set this up using four 9′ – 1/2″ EMT (steel electrical conduit) plus a 9′ – 3/4″ EMT center post. The post are set up as an “x” with the 3/4″ post in the center. I ran 1/4″ rope between the post to form the net. The posts are set 6′ from the center (can be set further apart, but was using the set up for another activity. Each side is 12′ x 12′, enough area for 4 players on a side.
Play begins with one side serving from the corner. Serve can be to any of the other 3 sides. Play continues like in volleyball, 3 hits on a side, until the ball is missed or goes out of bounds. The side missing or sending the ball out of bounds then scores a point. Play continues to 10 points and the side having the highest points losses and is either replaced with another team or the team with the lowest point total wins. Serve rotates when the serving side is scored upon.
