What is Pickleball?

Pickleball is one of the fastest-growing sports in the United States! It is a fun, engaging sport that combines different aspects of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. Pickleball is played on a shorter court with lightweight paddles and is a game that 2 or 4 players of any age can enjoy.

What are the rules?

Pickleball is a game played to 11 points and players can only score points when they, or their team, has the serve. Matches must be won by two points – meaning if one team as 11 points and another has 10, play continues until the higher scoring team is 2 points ahead. Much like tennis or other racket sports, there are rules about serving and receiving a serve, places on the court that are out of play, etc.
