9 Square in Air

9-Square is a game that is based on four-square. It is played on a larger court with more players, and has rules that reflect those differences.

Object of the game:
The goal of 9-Square is to have fun and stay in the game by hitting the ball into someone else’s square before it bounces in yours.

Players rotate counterclockwise in the eight squares surrounding the server’s square. Players enter the game in the first square, which is the corner square closest to the front of the line. Rotation occurs when someone gets out. The person who is out rotates to the end of the line, and the person in the front of the line rotates to square one. Players remaining in the game rotate one space, up to the square where the player got out. Players in squares beyond that square do not rotate. Once a player rotates all the way around to the eighth square, he or she does not rotate unless he/she is eliminated or he/she eliminates the server. Anyone who eliminates the server enters the center square and becomes the new server.

Game play:

The players on the court make the calls in the game. If the court cannot decide, then the line of waiting players makes the final decision.

Getting out:
A player is eliminated if any of the following things happen:
The ball bounces in his/her square, then bounces a second time before he/she hits it.
The player hits the ball out of bounds.
The player hits the ball into only his/her own square.
The player catches or holds the ball or double-touches it.
