How To Play Pickleball

Basic Overview

Pickleball is played on a badminton-sized court: 20’ x 44.’ The ball is served diagonally (starting with the right-hand service-square), and points can only be scored by the side that serves. 

Players on each side must let the ball bounce once before volleys are allowed, and there is a seven-foot no-volley zone on each side of the net, to prevent “spiking.” The server continues to serve, alternating service courts, until he or she faults. The first side scoring eleven points and leading by at least two points wins. Pickle-ball® can be played with singles or doubles.

Tips from the experts for your first game of pickleball.

Before you step onto the court, either indoors or out, make sure you are wearing the correct type of tennis shoes. Your shoes should have non-marking soles, provide stability for side-to-side movement, and have a flat, durable sole. Also, bring along some water to keep you hydrated.

The paddle you use should not be too heavy. Find one that gives you both touch/feel and power.  The grip should feel comfortable in your hand with some cushion. You can always re-wrap your grip or add a thin over grip. Remember to put your name on your paddle right away.

Some tips:  While waiting for the ball, keep your paddle high, centered to your chest – that way you’re ready for a shot on either side of you.  Keep on your toes, anticipating the next shot. Keep the ball in play – let your opponent make the error. You should always warm up before you get on the court – 5 minute quick walk to raise your body temperature, and always have a cool down – some stretches or a slow walk to lower your body temperature back to normal. Stay healthy so you can play more pickleball! When the game is over, all players come to the net and tap their paddles together, as a gesture of “good game”. Instead of handshakes, pickleballers like to tap paddles and give a few laughs.
