Four Square World Championship

WHEN: Saturday 29th of February 2020, 05:00 PM - 08:00 PM

WHERE: Bridgton Academy, 11 Academy Lane, North Bridgton, Maine

 17th Annual World Four Square Championships!

brought to you by Lakes Environmental Association and Bridgton Academy

Saturday, February 29, at 5:00 p.m.

at the Bridgton Academy Gymnasium

Bridgton Academy is located in North Bridgton  (www.bridgtonacademy.org). The championships are open to the public, so expect to see more than 100 people of all shapes, sizes and stature in attendance. Competitors from many states will battle for the greatest four square titles in the world. Officials from Square Four, the Four Square League of Boston, will oversee the event.

The Lakes Environmental Association collects a $10 registration fee to support their local environmental work. There is no advance registration required.

It would be a good idea to book lodging early and plan to take advantage of the skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, and more that Bridgton has to offer.  The Chamber of Commerce can help (www.mainelakeschamber.com).

The day will look like this:

  • 5:00 p.m.: Open registration and beginner rule workshop
  • 5:30 p.m.: Men’s and Women’s general entry (top 50 percent advance)
  • 6:15 p.m.: Men’s and Women’s Semifinals (top 25 percent advance)
  • 6:45 p.m.: Women’s Finals (winner takes all)
  • 7:10 p.m.: Men’s Finals (winner takes all)
  • 7:40 p.m.: New champion awards
  • 8:00 p.m.: Relocate to Bridgton House of Pizza for celebration
  • There will be a kids’ competition following general entry play.

There is a Sunday schedule for any competitors still in town:

  •  9:00 a.m.: Breakfast of champions at Ricky’s Diner on Main Street in Bridgton.
  • 10:30 a.m.: TBD post-champs outdoor activity (weather permitting).

The rules of the game are nearly identical to Four Square league rules (www.squarefour.org/rules) minus the special server rules. In other words, this is a vanilla competition and there are no double taps, body language, underhand only and blackjack rules allowed. Entrants will be divided into Women’s and Men’s divisions and there will be competition for kids 12 and under too.
