Four Square Game Markings

4 Square Solid and King Square Grids for Group Game Markings and Activity

We understand that coming up with new, fresh games for children to play can often be difficult, especially if you know your pupils could quickly grow bored with the same old thing every playtime or PE lesson. So, why not consider a range of fun, tried and tested games that will only need a rubber playground ball and a set of our 4 Square Solid or King Square Grids?

These playground game markings from us can easily add a new favourite activity to your students’ school day, and will brighten up any playground with their striking colours. Their square court design also makes them ideal for most playground dimensions, so you’ll always have space for multiple fun games.

Bring a new lease of life to playtimes and your lessons alike with our games grids, and contact us today when you have decided on the markings that will suit your playground best. Our specialist team will even work on weekends to fit around your schedule, so your pupils can have an interesting new game challenge waiting for them in the playground on Monday.

Our 4 Square Solid Grids

Our 4 Square Solid grids come in 3 x 3m dimensions, in bright and energetic block colours to catch your students’ eyes and to draw them into playing the game. Each square is numbered from 1 to 4, and you can rest assured that our hard-wearing materials mean these won’t become easily scuffed, so you’ll always be able to read which number is which!

Our King Square Grids

Unlike our 4 Square Solid grids, King Square Grids are set out as drawn lines, with three of the squares labelled from 1 to 3, and the fourth labelled K for “King” (it takes the place of the fourth square). This is the only difference between the two products, however, as we offer King Square Grids in a variety of colours that’s just as wide and using the same long-lasting materials that will see your markings stay in place on your playground for a long time to come. Similarly, they also come in 3 x 3m dimensions.


The Rules of Four Square and King Square

Once you have your chosen grid set up and ready for an outdoor PE lesson or for playtime, it will be time to teach your students the rules of Four Square or King Square. Both games are exactly the same, the only difference is the slight variation in the markings and the names of the squares.

The basic rules of Four Square and King Square are as follows:

There are also a few tricks that you can use to keep the game-changing and challenging for your pupils, so they are constantly engaging with the activity:
