In recent years, the game has become increasingly popular in the United States. The main reason is its similarity to table tennis game and it is quite easy to learn and anyone can play this game easily.
Pickleball game rules, court size
Similar to tennis, pickleball is also played on the court but with different dimensions. The size of the pickleball court is 44×20 with a 36 inch net and has a non-volleyball area called “The Kitchen”. Like tennis, pickleball can be played in singles and doubles.
Two rebound rule in Pickleball-
The game starts with a ”Two Bounce” means the serving team serves the ball across the court to the opponent and the serve must land beyond the kitchen, otherwise the serve will be considered a fault . If your serve lands in the kitchen or on the kitchen line, the serve will be called a fault. The returning team must return the serve to rebound 1 otherwise it will be called a foul.
Non-Valley Zone Rule in Pickleball-
When playing Pickleball, you can only hit the balls in the air if you are standing outside the non-volleyball or “kitchen” area. If you hit the ball in the air while staying inside the area, points will be awarded to your opponent. Make sure to reset your stance out of the zone while hitting the smash.
Scoring in Pickleball-
In pickleball, points are only scored during service, which means the receiver cannot score a point. At the start of the game, the server moves to the right side for the serve and if he scores a point, he will move to another side of the court. Service is rendered diagonally before the court of opposition.
History of Pickleball-
The game was invented in 1965 as a backyard game for children on Bainbridge Island, Washington, USA. The game is more popular day by day in the United States and hence in 2022 the game has been adopted as the official sport of Washington State.
