Pickleball Rules at a glance
Pickleball Rules at a glance
  • When serving, the ball must be hit underhand & below waist level diagonally across the court & must bounce before the opposing player can return it.
  • You can only score a point when serving, & the game goes to 11 points (by two clear points!)
  • If a point is scored, the serving team players will switch sides – the server will move from right to left.
  • 7 feet either side of the net is the no-volley zone, also called “the kitchen,” & you cannot volley the ball in this zone.
