What is Pickleball?

Pickleball is a sport in which two, three, or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball over a net. The sport shares features of other racquet sports, the dimensions and layout of a badminton court, and a net and rules similar to tennis, with a few modifications.  This sport is for EVERY AGE!

Rules

Scoring:

Games are played to 11, win by 2. Each team member gets to serve until they lose the point, with one exception, the team that serves first only gets one serve. The score is a series of 3 numbers; serving team score, receiving team score, and server #1 or #2. For example, the score 7-3-2 means the serving team has 7 points, receiving team has 3 points, and the second server is about to serve.

Serving:

Must serve underhand from behind the baseline, cross-court, into the service area past the kitchen. Only the serving team can score points.

Quirky Rules:

After the serve, the receiving team must let the ball bounce, then the serving team must let that return bounce before hitting. After that the ball may be volleyed (hit in the air) or off the bounce. A player cannot strike the ball in the kitchen (the area in front of the net) unless the ball bounces in the kitchen first.
