What is Pickleball?
Pickleball is a popular paddle sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and table tennis. It is typically played on a rectangular court with a net in the middle, similar in size to a badminton court. The game can be played both indoors and outdoors.
Here are some key features of pickleball:
- Equipment: Pickleball is played with a perforated plastic ball, similar to a wiffle ball, and solid paddles made of materials like wood, composite, or graphite.
- Court: The pickleball court is 20 feet wide and 44 feet long for doubles play, with a net height of 36 inches at the sidelines and 34 inches at the center. For singles play, the court is narrower.
- Rules: Pickleball is played by two or four players (singles or doubles) who take turns serving the ball diagonally over the net. The ball must be allowed to bounce once on each side before volleys (hitting the ball without letting it bounce) are permitted. The game is played to 11, 15, or 21 points, with a two-point margin required to win.
- Scoring: Scoring in pickleball is a bit different from tennis. Points are only scored by the serving team, and games are typically played to a set number of points (e.g., 11, 15, or 21). In doubles play, only the serving team can score points.
- Kitchen (Non-Volley Zone): There is a designated area near the net called the “kitchen” or “non-volley zone” where players cannot volley the ball (hit it in the air without letting it bounce). This rule prevents players from dominating the game at the net.
Pickleball is known for being a relatively easy sport to pick up, making it accessible to people of all ages and skill levels. It has gained popularity in recent years and has a strong following in North America, with many recreational players and competitive tournaments held worldwide. The game offers a fun way to stay active and enjoy friendly competition.
