How To Play Pickleball

Game Length
  • Games are played to 11, win by 2.
Serving
  • The score has 3 numbers; serving team score, receiving team score and the number server you are on your team (1 or 2). 
  • Both players on a team get to serve before the other team gets to serve
  • The only exception is at the beginning of a game when the very first server of the game starts as the 2nd server in the right service court. So the score at the beginning of each game is “0-0-2.”
  • When a team starts serving (either to begin a game or after a side-out) the player in the right service court serves first.
  • Players serve the ball underhand from behind the baseline into the opponent’s service court diagonal from them.
Scoring
  • Only the serving team can score a point by winning a rally.
  • If the serving team scores a point, the two serving team players switch places
  • The serving team continues switching places until they lose a rally. 
  • When the serving team loses a rally, the second server then serves from their current position. 
  • Once the serving team loses another rally, the opposing team gets to serve. This is called a side-out.
Other Rules
  • The ball must bounce once on each side before either team can start volleying the ball in the air
  • You cannot hit the ball in the air while standing in the kitchen or on any of the lines surrounding the kitchen.
