A geometric proof of a theorem on antiregularity of generalized quadrangles
A geometric proof is given in terms of Laguerre geometry of the theorem of Bagchi, Brouwer and Wilbrink, which states that if a generalized quadrangle of order s > 1 has an antiregular point then all of its points are antiregular.
